Instructions

  • If you gather your pinecone from outside, make sure there are no bugs hiding inside.
  • Paint pinecone with white paint. A second coat may be needed. Allow to dry completely.
  • When pinecone is dry, tie blue fabric strip around the top 1/3 of the pinecone as the scarf. Fringe the ends of the scarf by cutting thin strips with scissors.
  • Paint jumbo craft sticks with light blue paint and set aside to dry.
  • Glue blue felt strip to the top of the pinecone for the ear muff band. Glue the blue pom-poms to the ends of the felt strip.
  • Assemble ski poles by gluing white glitter pom-poms to the end of the two toothpicks.
  • Cut brown chenille into thirds. Set one piece aside for another project. Insert a brown chenille piece into the side of the pinecone for the arm and glue in place. Repeat on other side.
  • Hold the "ski pole" up to the "arm" and once you have it where you want it, trim the end of the chenille to about 3/4" away from the pole. Wrap the end of the chenille arm around the pole and add a dab of glue to hold in place.
  • Glue the pinecone to the jumbo craft stick skis. Paint the craft sticks with a bit of blue glitter glue. Dab on some snow texture medium to the skis.
  • Dot on two eyes with black paint using the handle end of the paintbrush. Glue the orange chenille piece in as the nose.
  • Add a chenille hanger for your ornament by bending a piece of blue chenille in half and gluing the open ends onto the back of the pinecone.
