Pine Cone Angel

Pine Cone Angel

Technique: General Crafting

texture paste or fake snow
wooden bead
permanent marker
oakmoss or similar dried botanical for hair
natural raffia

hot glue gun

I love making ornaments from natural ingredients, and this one came out quite cute. She's really quite simple. With the permanent marker, draw eyes onto the bead. Glue the bead into position on the top of the pinecone and then glue some oakmoss around the bead for her hair.

Use the texture paste or fake snow to dapple the tips of the pine cone. Set aside and allow to dry. Attach a raffia bow at the back for wings, and attach a cup hook into the top of the bead to hang her from.
