Today is a beautiful snowy day in my part of the world, so I have been inspired to share these festive pine cone skiers with you...
To create you will need
Blue gun & glue
To begin wrap your pipe cleaner around your pine cone to create little arms
Cut out your felt pieces ~ mittens, scarf, a rectangle (for your hat), feet and your circles for your ski poles.
Cut your skies out of birchbark
Wrap your felt around the acorn head, add a dab of glue and seal.
Tie your embroidery floss around the hat and knot.
Cut your tassels
Brush the scales with glue and sprinkle on your glitter
These fun folk shall be skiing down our tree and across our nature table all winter long.
As well, a wee warning ~ in the hands of a child they seem to zoom all over the house, up down and all around ~ who could resist ; )!
Wishing you warmth and wonder this season
~ Shanti ~
