What do you need to make this Pine Cone Christmas Craft
I promise you won’t need much, well other than pine cones of course! Bits of scrap felt, markers, pom pom and glue and paint are the main items. If you like to craft and make holiday crafts with the kids, I’m sure you already have most of these materials at home!
How do I turn these into Pine Cone Ornaments?
The easiest way would be to hot glue some twine that you twist into a circle and glue on back of the wooden bead head. But if you want the pine cone ornament to be more secure, you’ll need to get wooden beads that you can thread and add the string through that (follow our pine cone penguin ornament tutorial) and use a thick needle to go though the felt hat if it’s the Santa or elf.
