Cute DIY pinecone fairy craft for kids

With all the beautiful weather that we’ve been having lately weve been trying to get outdoors as much as we possibly can. The other day we took a short drive out to a local lake and went for a walk around it. It was such a lovely day and the views were just amazing. On the way back around my little guy came across these really cool pinecones and it inspired us to come up with another pinecone craft. Ted came up with the idea to make this little DIY pinecone fairy craft and even decided how we would make the arms and head too. We think they look fab and plan to glue on a string loop so that we can display them in our kitchen!

Here’s what we used

Pinecone
Coloured paints
Pom Pom
Pipecleaners
Glue gun (pva glue can be used but is a lot more fiddly)
Scissors

Take your pinecone and paint the end of your pines in your chosen colour before putting it aside to dry.

Once your pinecone has dried, take your pom pom and glue it in the centre of the flat base of your pinecone. Then cut two equal lengths of pipecleaner and glue one either side of the pom pom to make the arms. Curl the end of the pipecleaners slightly to make the hands.

To make the wings take a pipecleaner and bring both ends in to meet in the centre. Twist the ends around the centre of the pipecleaner to create the shape of a number 8. Then glue your wings on and pinch them into a wing shape. Why not add a loop of ribbon so that you can hang your fairies up? They look adorable!
