- Corks (both wine and sparkling)

Get inspired with these two crafts
Use a plain cork or paint one black as the base of your spider. Wrap four pipe cleaners around the base and twist in the middle until you have four legs to each side. This easy and cute set of spiders is perfect for decorating a small space or even on your pumpkin decor.
Spooky cork characters
Pick out several corks left over from your Missouri wine and sparkling wine to create a full cast for your Halloween decor. Paint each one individually to create an array of spooky art. From pumpkins and skeletons to Frankenstein and Jack O' Lanterns, each character adds something different to the final art. You can also take orange and green colored wire and wrap around your cork of choice to create a pumpkin, and complete it with a stem. This wire art allows you to display the names of your favorite wineries within your holiday decor. Decorate with the corks as ornaments on a Halloween tree, string them together to use as spooky garland or feature them in your favorite glassware to display your cork creations.
