I picked up some pine cones on my Fall adventure a few weeks ago. Pine cones are one of my favorite items to use for art projects. Kids love them too. They can spend hours out in the woods exploring and looking for the perfect pine cone to take back home with them.
Once home they can make turkeys, penguins, elves, and my favorite are miniature trees. They look like tiny trees anyway.
You can paint them or leave them plain.
Glue them down on a base or into a small pot. I added mine to some baskets I made from yarn I picked up on sale while shopping in Flagstaff.
In the past we have used pine cones for fire starters, wreaths, and pine cone roses. I have even taken them apart for tiny wooden tile pieces for roof tops on little houses for my miniature gardens. What ever you decide to make with your pine comes, have a ton of fun finding them and decorating your homes…happy crafting everyone.
