Pine Cone Christmas Ornaments
Christmas is near and I made a ‘how to’ for cute ornaments. This is a great tutorial for kids to make on a weekend before Christmas. You can hang the ornaments in the Christmas tree ur put them in the window for decoration.
See my Felted Beads Tutorial on how to make your own felted beads or bobbles.
Below is a list for all the materials I used. If you choose to make only one or two of the ornaments you will need less materials.
Felted beads/bobbles made with the mentioned tutorial
Wool roving or carded wool in white, green, orange, pink and red
Glimmer/glitter in silver and red
Felt fabric in red, white, offwhite and light blue
Felt a white bead and an orange nose with the wool roving. Glue the nose to the head. With a pen draw the eyes and the mouth. Paint the pine cone with white paint. (I only did the outer petals). Cut out a small scarf in light blue felt fabric. Glue the scarf, so it folds around the snowman’s neck. For the hat cut out a circle and two narrow rectangles. Glue the rectangles to the circle to make a hat. Cut 2 white mittens in felted fabric. Glue the head on top of the pine cone.
Christmas Angel Ornament
Sprayglue the pine cone and put silver glimmer on it. Paint the outer petals of the pine cone with white paint. Make a pink felted bead/bobble. Glue the hair to the head and glue a glory on top of it. Cut out mittens and angel wings in white felted fabric. Draw the mouth and eyes with a pen. Glue the head on top of the pine cone.
Pine Cone Gnome
Sprayglue the pine cone and put red glimmer on it. Make a felted, white bead. Draw mouth and eyes on the bead with a pen. For the hat cut out a circle. Cut out about a 1/8 slice, so the hat gets easier to fold. Then fold and glue the hat. Cut out tiny, white dots and glue them onto the hat. Glue the head on top of the pine cone.
Pine Cone Christmas Trees
You can paint the Christmas tree or make an ‘organic’ version without paint. The green version is painted with white paint and immediately after sprinkled with silver glimmer. Glue the small felted beads/bobbles under the petals.
