12 Crafts of Christmas – Pine Cone Christmas fun
December 10, 2015
Yesterday Hours of Fun published the 3rd craft of Christmas, this time it was crafting fun with pine cones.
The download shows you how to make a glitter Christmas tree from a large pine cone, you can get the free download here.
At Hours of Fun we have been having more fun with pine cones, although not as much fun as I would like as I am still patiently waiting for some of the pine cones I collected a few weeks ago to dry out.
You could try making a pine cone reindeer.
For this you will need – a drawing pin, a piece of ribbon, a pipe cleaner, 2 googly eyes, a piece of material or paper, a pompom and some glue.
I used the drawing pin to secure the ribbon in place, be gentle when pushing it in to the pine cone (see the picture below).
I shaped the pipe cleaner for the antlers then pushed it into the pine cone. I rolled the material into a cone shape for the ears and placed them inside the pine cone, with a little glue to secure them in place. I then stuck on the eyes and the nose to create this super cute reindeer.
You could also try making a more decorative pine cone, which you could design to match your decorations. For this you will need a length of ribbon, a drawing pin, a button, a needle and thread.
I cut a piece of ribbon to hang the pine cone and again secured it in place using a drawing pin.
I then tied a bow using another length of ribbon, then placed in position with a button. To secure the button to the bow and the bow to the hanging ribbon, I used a needle and thread and made a few stitches to hold it all in place.
