Wine cork giraffe!

When you think you've seen everything... I confess I am not a big fan of projects with wine corks. I don't know why. Maybe because they've been used over and over and sometimes people push it a bit too far for my taste. Anyway, it takes more than stamps, key-rings or place-mats to impress me when it comes to DIY using these bottle stoppers.

However, even I had to fall in love with this tutorial. After owls and elephants, it's time for giraffes!

This has to be one of the cutest ways to use wine corks I've seen!

This is a wonderful tutorial by Ashley Hackshaw, a truly inspirational DIY & Crafter. You cannot visit her website without clicking in the "about me" section. Some lessons we live, some lessons we learn through the experience of people like Ashley. A true star!

What you will need for this tutorial is some wire clothes hangers (to make the structure of the body), newspaper (to give it some filling), packing tape, wood glue and corks, lots of them! For the full "how to" visit
