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

Supplies:

  • Pine cones
  • Pink, blue, and brown felt
  • Scissors
  • Buttons
  • Yellow pipe cleaners
  • School glue
  • Hot glue
  • Yarn

 

Preparation instructions:

  • 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.
