Autumn is upon us! It’s a great time to collect pinecones and put them to good use in your craft projects. How cute is this little fella!?

  • Pine cone
  • Clay
  • Googly eyes
  • Tiny twigs



  1. Mould some clay to make a couple of feet at the bottom of the flat end of the pine cone. I find this helps to do this first to stop it wobbling all over the place!
  2. Make a cone shape and two semi circles and stick to the flat end of the pinecone to form the face and the ears.

  3. Add googly eyes and teeny tiny whiskers made out of twigs
