Yesterday’s pine cone crafts were super simple. Today, we’re back to being a little more complicated. In fact, H got downright frustrated this evening. Here’s a tip. Use pine cones that will stand up on their own for this craft. We didn’t and the pom poms kept falling off. Super frustrating for a 4 year old. BUT, they turned out really cute!
Pine Cone Crafts: Pom Pom Pine Cones
Preparation time: None
Project time: ~20-30 minutes
Project cost: $ Low
Parental involvement: Low
Inspiration: Pom Pom Pine Cones from Dig this Chick
- Pine cones
- Paper plate or scrap paper
- Small pom poms (I bought a multi-sized pack of the shimmery ones and saved the bigger sizes for later. I LOVE pom poms!)
- Pipe cleaners
Step by step instructions:
- Place glue on the paper plate.
- Have your child dip the pom poms in the glue and stick them on the pom pom scales. I let my girls stick one on each scale, but you wouldn’t have to do that many for it to look really cute!
- Twist the pipe cleaner onto the top of the pine cone and hang.
If you decide to make this week’s pine cone crafts 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!
