    Preparing your materials

    Start by cutting a crescent shaped piece of red felt for the coat, to wrap around the body of the wine cork. You will also need a rectangular piece of red felt for the hat and a thin strip of white felt for the scarf.


    Cut a length of twine and comb it out as straight as you can to make the hair.

    Heat up your glue gun and glue the edges of the coat together and pop over the wine cork.
