Maker Monday combines artistry with nature in Pine Cone Owls. Venture out to your backyard or the nearest park to search for pine cones. You can make your owl as realistic or imaginative as you like.



Pine cones

Foam sheets

Pipe cleaners


Glue gun

Google eyes

Twist a pipe cleaner around the bottom layer of the pine cone and form into the feet. Cut two sizes of circles in contrasting colors for the eye background. One the larger circle, snip short lines around the edge. Cut a “mask” shape with points for the face and a triangle for the beak. The wings on the sides should be shaped like slices of pizza.

Glue the eye pieces together with a dot of glue in each layer, from the biggest circle to the smaller circle to the google eyes. Glue the beak and eyes to the mask.
