I’ve been wanting to make these for a long time. I saw them in the Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Crafts 2011 magazine. You can find the pattern here.
I started by cutting out the pattern pieces.
I ironed a piece of freezer paper on to the felt, then traced and cutout the pattern pieces.
Following the instructions…
…I layered the pieces on a lollipop stick.
I cut a piece of wire and wrapped a thin strip of felt around it to form the stem.
I glued the stem and a pinked circle of felt on the pinecone to finish.
You can make them in your favorite colors or in browns to look more natural.
The color of springtime is in the flowers; the color of winter is in the imagination.
