What kind of wild, imaginary animals can you make out of pine cones? Try our pine cone creatures craft and find out!

What You'll Need:

  • Pine cone
  • Decorations
  • Craft glue

For each creature, you'll need one large pine cone. You'll also need an assortment of decorations (old buttons, scrap cloth, pipe cleaners, real or plastic flowers.)

Use these decorations to turn the pine cone into an imaginary animal. Pipe cleaners work well for creating legs. When you're done, give your creature a name, and make up a story about it.
