How to make a Jack O’Lantern Wine Stopper:
In a plastic or paper bowl, pour in some plaster. You will want enough to fill the whole mold. I suggest airing on the side of having extra than too little.
Next, pour some water into the plaster. I would start by pouring a little in and mixing it and then adding more water if needed. You don’t want your mixture to be too runny.
Thoroughly mix together the plaster and water and then pour it straight into your mold.
Stick the wine cork into the opening of your mold.
Make sure to wipe away any excess plaster that ran over the top of the mold as it will harden onto the Jack O’lantern. Let the mold dry for an hour until you take it out.
Once your Jack O’lantern is dry, you can go ahead and paint it whatever color you want. Now it’s time to crack open that wine and put your new Jack O’Lantern stopper to good use!
