If you are collecting your own pine cones, you might want to put them in the freezer overnight to kill any beasties they may be harboring.
Paint the pine cones white. Set aside to dry.
Print the gnome hat template. I included two sizes. Select the one that most closely fits your pine cones. Use the template to cut out your gnome hats.
Form the hat into a cone shape, and glue the seam.
This is what the finished gnome hat will look like.
Run a bead of glue around the inside rim of the hat.
Glue the hat to the pine cone.
Glue the nose in place right so it just peeks out from under the rim of the hat.
If you’re going to hang the pine cone gnome, use a needle to sew a length of thread to the peak of the hat. For more kids and family crafts please join us each Friday on the Bowdabra blog. And please follow us on Facebook!
