Today, we did another fun pine cone craft! This was a craft that required hot glue, and lots of help from mommy, but the result was these super-cute pine cone owls!
How to Make Pine Cone Owls
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Project time: ~15 minutes
Project cost: $$ Medium
Parental involvement: High
Inspiration: Pine Cone Owl Ornament from Repeat Crafter Me
- Pine cones
- Pink, blue, and brown felt
- Yellow pipe cleaners
- School glue
- Hot glue
- Cut out felt pieces for eyes and wings. There are instructions at Repeat Crafter Me, but I just eyeballed it and cut them out. If your children are older, they can do the cutting, but I went ahead and did it because we were short on time.
- Cut the pipe cleaners short (about an inch and a half) and bend into the shape of a beak.
Step by step instructions:
- Allow your kids to pick out the colors for the button eyes. Since there’s not a TON they get to do in this project, this step is a good one to not skip!
- Have your kids glue the blue felt to the pink felt, then the buttons to the blue felt. Let dry.
- Hot glue (YOUR JOB, NOT YOUR KIDS) the eyes, beak, and wings to the pine cone.
- Tie the yarn to the top to hang.
If you decide to make these adorable pine cone owls with your child, be sure to come back and tell me about it! Take pictures and share them on my Facebook sharing post! I’d love to see what you and your little ones are making together!
