I know that a pinecone craft may sound more of a winter activity but there is so much more you can turn a pinecone into, other than Christmas decorations. Think of pinecone owls, spiders, fairies or…apples.
My inspiration for this craft came from an adorable pinecone pineapple. It’s just a matter of color and leaf change and you can easily have an apple instead of a pineappple. If you want a yellow apple, even better, the only thing to change is the leaf shape.
Pinecone apple craft
Materials: pinecones, pain, sticks, hot glue, green card stock
Step 1: Gather a few pinecones. If you can’t find any pine trees near your house, you can always get a bag of pinecones from your local craft store.
Step 2: Paint your pinecones. We used red paint but yellow or green will also work.
Step 3: Break a stick into small pieces and glue the pieces on top of the pinecones.
Step 4: Cut out tiny leaves from green card stock, felt or paper.
Step 5: Glue the leaves to the sticks.
