How to Make Pine Cone Angels Ornaments for Kids
Here we are, mid-December, and no snow! Usually this time of year, it’s difficult to find pine cones, acorns, seeds, and other materials necessary for nature crafting. Not this year!
So get outside (you may not even need a coat) and bring along a pail for collecting pine cones, maple seeds, acorns, and buckeye nuts. Those are the materials we used to create darling Pine Cone Angels for our Christmas tree!
Supplies for Angel Christmas Ornament
Directions for Pine Cone Angel Ornament
1. After gathering supplies outside, use the hot glue gun to attach a buckeye nut or acorn to a pine cone. Secure 2 maple seeds to each side of the pine cone, fanning them upward to create wings.
2. Paint a sweet face onto the Buckeye or acorn using a toothpick or a very fine paintbrush.
3. Last, bend a small piece of silver pipe cleaner to make the shape of a halo. Attach it to the back of the angel’s head with hot glue.
Isn’t she pretty? And quite fragile too, so use care while hanging. The maple seed wings are delicate!
