Gathering natural craft supplies is an Autumn tradition at my house. We head outside with baskets and bags and go on a pinecone and acorn hunt.
Of course this gathering time always inspires a nature craft or two.
Today we decided to make some pinecone owls out of our bounty!
To make your own you will need:
pinecones, (various sizes, shapes)
paint and paintbrush
glue gun and glue stick
To start we painted "bellies" on our pinecones.
(basically these were upside down triangles)
Then we added little spots to their bellies.
Paint the pumpkin seed beaks orange
Then using a glue gun glue on the pumpkin seed beaks and googly eyes.
Finally glue onto your branch and admire!
What a simple and adorable craft to begin the Autumn craft season!
