What you will need:

Red Yarn

White Yarn

Glue Gun

Glue Sticks

Flower Pots

Black Buttons

Wine Cork Tree

Attention winos and holiday crafters: this has your name written all over it! Start saving your wine corks until you have enough to assemble this adorable pom pom covered tree (you'll need about 45 to complete the project), or buy 'em online.


What you will need:

Natural Corks

Styrofoam Cone – measured 7″ tall, and the bottom diameter is 3″

Brown Paper Shopping Bag

Wax Paper

Hot Glue & Hot Glue Gun

Pom Poms

Wood Star

Metallic Gold Acrylic Paint

Steps:

  1. Unwrap/open the brown paper grocery bag. Set onto a flat surface.

  2. Lay your foam cone onto the paper bag and wrap it around the cone. Trim the bag to cover just the foam. Use hot glue to affix the bag to the cone. Fold the ends in for the top and bottom and secure with hot glue.

  3. Place wax paper onto a flat surface. Place your cone onto the wax paper. Begin to apply the corks to the cone. Apply a strip of hot glue to the side of a cork and place it onto the cone at the bottom. Repeat all the way around the cone. Keep the cone on a flat surface, so the base remains flat and solid.

  4. Continue to add corks, angling them as you move from the bottom to the top of the cone and affix with hot glue. When finished, fill some of the larger gaps with pom poms. Attach with hot glue.

  5. Paint a wood star with gold metallic paint. Let dry completely and attach to the top of the tree with hot glue.

  6. Display in your home or give as a homemade Christmas gift.

DIY Pinecone Elves

Forage your backyard or local park for pinecones and you're already halfway done prepping this cute holiday craft.


What you will need:

Small Pinecones

Wooden Balls

Felt

Hot Glue Gun

Twine

Black Paint or Black Fine Tip Sharpie

String

Small Bells

Steps:

  1. Find some gold and white dipped pinecones at the craft store, they will help with jazzing up this cute DIY. The first thing you want to do is cut out your pieces for the hat, shoes and scarf out of the felt.

  2. Each elf will need two heart shaped pieces for the feet, a rounded triangle for the hat and a long skinny rectangle for the scarf. Depending on the size of your pinecones, you may need to play around with the shapes and sizes until you like how they fit.

  3. Glue the wooden ball on top of the pinecone using the hot glue gun. You may need to break off a few pieces of the top of the pinecone to get a flat surface for the ball to sit on. Don’t worry if any glue is showing, it will be covered up by the scarf later.

  4. Next, fold the triangle in half and attach the two sides with a thin line of hot glue

  5. Attach the tiny bell to the top of the hat.

  6. Glue the hat to the head and wrap the scarf around the head, securing with more hot glue.

  7. Next, sandwich the 2 pieces of felt hearts and glue them together. Attach this to the bottom of the pinecone for the elf feet.

  8. Add 2 small dots with black paint for the eyes.

  9. Lastly, attach a piece of string to the back of the hat.

  10. Tie the string on a piece of twine to make a garland. Or tie it directly on the tree for an ornament!

  11. Hang these little guys anywhere you want to add some festive charm into your decor!
