Create a cone creature that's as weird and wonderful as your imagination can make it.

What You'll Need:

  • Table covering
  • Smock
  • Pine cones of various sizes
  • Cotton balls
  • Poster paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Yarn
  • Chenille stems
  • Fabric scraps
  • White glue
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Glitter glue

Step 1: Cover the table and put on a smock or old shirt.

Step 2: Fill out your pine cone creatures with cotton balls. Paint them any color you like and let dry.

Step 3: Adorn them with yarn for hair, chenille stems for limbs, and fabric scraps for clothes. Don't forget to glue on those wiggle eyes.

Step 4: Top off with touches of glitter glue and let dry. Oh no -- it's the attack of the cone creatures! Better go make some more!

The next indoor craft is a creative way to send your greetings to friends and family.
