Pinecone Faeries

Create enchanting faeries that showcase the beauty of autumn.

What you will need:

  • Pinecones
  • Pressed leaves (coated in mod podge or dipped in beeswax to preserve them)
  • Wooden beads
  • Acorn caps
  •  Wool 
  • Twine
  •  Paint (optional)

How to make the pinecone faeries:

  1.  If your child would like to paint their pinecones, do this first and let them dry.
  2.  Glue some wool on top of the wooden bead for hair. Glue an acorn cap on top of the hair, then glue the head to the pinecone body. 
  3.  Cut some twine and tie a knot at the end pieces. Glue that knot to the back of the pinecone, at the base of the head. This provides a loop for children to fly their faeries or hang them. 
  4.  Glue your pressed leaves to the back for faerie wings.

Faces on your faeries are optional.
