How to Make Pine Cone Angels

Step 1: Spray paint your pine cone, leaves, and wooden ball.

Step 2: Use the sand paper to flatten out the end of your pine cone where you’ll attach the head.

Step 3: Attach the head to the pine cone using your glue gun. (My head happens to be a gold mesh covered styrofoam ball that I had handy.)

Step 4: Attach the wings to the back of the pine cone body, using your glue gun.

Step 5: Make a small bow with your gold ribbon; attach bow to the point where the two wings meet on the back (to give it a more finished look).

You can make a variety of angels in varied shapes and sizes by using different types of pine cones.

  3. Dianna, what kind of tree did these little pine cones come from? The only ones I’ve seen here in Florida are either huge or medium size that are really heavy. We visit Ohio every couple of years and by knowing the name of the tree, I might be able to find some either in Ohio or on the way. These angels are absolutely adorable!

    Once more, thank you!
