A Winter Craft Idea for Kids

Here's a winter craft idea that takes its cue from nature.

Winter Craft Idea

Sometimes I get my best "craft inspiration" as I'm taking my daily walk. Today I found a pine cone and found myself wondering what I could do with it. And then it came to me! A Christmas ornament. And that's how this pine cone skier came to life!

Want to make this craft? Here's what you'll need:

  • Pine cones
  • Wooden beads
  • Colored markers
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Toothpicks
  • Buttons
  • Felt scraps and pom-poms
  • Glue
  • Ribbon for hanging the finished ornament


1. Glue two popsicle sticks to the bottom of the pine cone. Let dry.

2. Use a round wooden bead for the head (we made our own from salt dough

3. With a black marker, draw a face on the bead.

4. Cut felt scraps and pom-poms to make hats and scarves. Glue to head.

5. Glue the head to the pine cone "body". Let dry.

6. Take a pipe cleaner and wrap it around the pine cone body. These are the arms and hands.

7. Glue a small button to the bottom of a toothpick (ski poles).

8. Attach to pipe cleaner "arms."

9. Add a ribbon to the ornament by tying colored string, yarn or ribbon around the skier's neck. Use as a tree ornament or glue a name tag on the front of the pine cone and use as a place card.

That's it!
