Simple Solution – Burlap Pinecones and Acorns

Burlap Pinecones Acorns
Materials:
Burlap Pine Cones HOW1Instructions: 
For Pinecones – 
  1. Paint egg with Burnt Umber paint.  I only applied a single coat – paint does not have to be opaque, it just reduces the chance of white space showing through your pine cone “petals”.  Let dry.
  2. Use scissors to cut multiple “petals” – rounded on one end, approximately 1” x 1/2” wide, from brown burlap.
  3. Use hot glue to begin mounting “petals” at bottom point of painted egg, overlapping petals alternately.
  4. Continue mounting petals, overlapping each row, to top of egg.  Mount 3 petals at top of egg with approximately 1/2” extending upward from egg.  Add small amount of hot glue and twist ends together to form “stem”.
Burlap Acorn HOW
For Acorns – 
  1. Cut 2” x 2” square of natural burlap. Place small egg in center of square and hot glue point of egg to center of square. Bring edges of burlap up around egg and glue around top edge of egg. Trim any excess burlap.
  2. Cut 1/2” x 3” strip of brown burlap.
  3. Hot glue bottom edge of strip around top of natural burlap on egg, leaving opening at top.
  4. Apply hot glue to top of egg.  Fold upper edge of brown burlap inward and twist together to form “cap” on acorn. When glue cools, remove any excess hot glue threads.
