This little Rudolph pine cone craft is completely Tristan’s idea. We were walking home from the library one morning and saw a couple of great ‘crafting’ pine cones on the sidewalk. Of course we picked them up and brought them home with us (admit it, you would, too)! They sat on the kitchen cupboard for a couple of days until inspiration struck about what we would make from them. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.
We had the felt out on this day for another craft, and Tristan wanted to practice cutting the little scraps. When he cut out the shape you see, he called them antlers, and the Rudolph pine cone craft was born.
He glued his antlers into the side of his pine cone a couple of ’rounds’ up from the bottom.
He chose the googly eyes that he wanted. He likes to make most of his creations with different coloured eyes. Kallista also had a great time!
Then he chose a nice, bright red pom pom nose and glued it on as well.
I think this little Rudolph is a cutie and will brighten up our Christmas until he is needed to help Santa through the fog.
