How to make a recycled champagne cork acorn

I tend to save champagne and wine corks. Don't a lot of us? Well, now that it's fall, not that you would know it by the 100 degree weather, it's time to start the fall crafting (even if it is in the air conditioning). An that is just what I did.
I cut the top half off the champagne cork's roundish part. Then I carved it back to having a rounded edge. The bottom half I carved down to a rounded pointy tip like an acorn. Then I cut the line where the top half and bottom of the acorn meet a bit more deep.

All then that was left to do was a bit of smoothing of the cut marks and I did that with my Dremel.Oh and glue a tiny bit of a stick from the yard onto the top.

This is cute, but what I really like about it is that its something I can use my dremel on. I just got my first one and any dremel related craft is catnip to me right now.

What a cute idea ... and a great way to practice with my Dremel tool. I'm a bit nervous about using it and need practice on something safer and inexpensive. Thanks you!
