Pinecone Ninjas


I wanted to make something a little different this year for an ornament…
with my daughters newfound love of nunchuks, I opted to make some ninjas for the Christmas tree!
These little ornaments are super cute and can be made in any colour you could dream up.


To make your own pinecone ninja you will need:
pinecone
wooden bead "head" (about 1 inches in diameter, or larger)
black paint and brush
black glitter
embroidery floss
glue gun and glue stick
white craft glue
*you are certainly NOT limited to black…
make PINK ninjas
BLUE ninjas
or whatever colour you please!!


To begin, paint your pinecone black all over...


While it is still wet sprinkle it generously with glitter.


Now take your wooden bead head and paint it like so…
just leave a small space clear to paint on your eyes.
(use a very small brush, or toothpick to make the eyes)


Paint your bead all over with white glue, (except the "face" part)
Roll around in your black glitter!


Now take your embroidery floss and stick it through your bead head…
using your glue gun, run a dab of glue at the bottom of the bead to fasten your floss,
(I also put a bit of glue in through the top of the hole, just for extra durability)
Fasten your head to your pinecone…
and DONE!
