Easy Pinecone Crafts - A Black Crow

We found some pine cones on our walk last week and wondered what kind of pinecone crafts we could come up with. After some brainstorming, we came up with this cute crow.

Pinecone Crafts

The idea is so easy. Let's take a look at what you'll need:


  • One pine cone (ours was medium sized, but you could make yours smaller)
  • Styrofoam ball (medium)
  • Black and orange craft foam
  • Googly eyes (medium)
  • Black tempra paint and paintbrush
  • A small piece of sponge or foam
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Our template.

Pinecone Crafts


1. Paint the pine cone and styrofoam ball black. Let dry.

3. Using our template, cut out the beak, feet, and wings from the craft foam.

4. Glue the beak and googly eyes onto the styrofoam ball.

5. Attach the feet to the bottom of the pine cone by poking a hole in the feet using scissors.

6. After you've attached the feet, attach a piece of foam or sponge to the bottom if the pine cone. Cut a small hole in the foam with scissors and then poke the bottom of the pine cone through

7. Attach the wings by sliding them through the pine cone "leaves". There's no need to use glue for this step.
