This is a simple & pretty quick craft project!
Hot glue gun
Brown felt (i used the 8.5 X 11 sheets)
Embroidery Thread (I call it cross stitch thread)
Rotary Cutter & Mat
Small egg shaped Styrofoams
cut 1" strips from felt
I want to say it took 4 strips per pine cone
I'm not really sure if this has a name but make your
strips look like this! :)
Making a loop....glue a piece of your embroidery thread to one side of you strip.
You only need to do this is you plan on using them for ornaments.
Just start rolling the strip up
Once your almost done rolling it up put a good bit of glue on the bottom to stick to the styrofoam. Hold this down for a fewseconds because it tends to rise up.
Keep wrapping each new piece around the styrofoam (placing glue at the beginning of each strip). When you reach the bottom it should look something like
You could add small pieces to the bottom to cover up
the last little bit of styrofoam but found this works just as good.
Cut something like this.............
Glue in place & there you go!
A very cute pine cone ornament. :)
You could also make a bunch of these & put them in
a clear glass vase which would be very neat.
Right now since I don't have my tree up yet I have them sitting on our mantle with the strings tucked in behind them. I am trying to drag out the Christmas decor this week to put out so my mantle doesn't look so plain.
I thought these would also make neat Christmas
gifts! Trying to think of a fun gift to give a close friend or neighbor? You just might be getting pine cones for Christmas! :)
