Pine Cone Christmas Caroler Ornament

By: Carmella Dunkin for
Pine Cone Christmas Caroler Ornament
Pine Cone Christmas Caroler Ornament

"Pine cone Christmas caroler ornament is a fun little craft made from a simple pine cone and decorated with other fun items found in the nature of our mountain top in Colorado. The ornament is a fast and easy to make item that takes only about 20 minutes to complete. Finding fresh pine cones is a must, as older ones tend to fall apart pretty fast and easy once they are decaying from the weather. So you want to look for fresh, newly fallen pine cones. They smell good too because of the pine sap!"

How adorable! I would love to make an entire set of carolers. Do you have a pattern for others, or is this the only one you have made so far? I can see making a half dozen or so to give as gifts or glue down on a tray. Neat idea!
