Pine Cone Ghosts


Easy? Cute? Not-scary-environmentally-friendly-Halloween-fun? CHECK. We have you covered. More accurately, Mother Nature has you covered. Isn't she so generous?


These little guys could be used in a myriad of ways. From a Halloween tree decoration to a wall decoration, these are just fun! Moreover, these guys are virtually free. Is there anything better than free fun for the family that doubles as a decoration and is environmentally friendly? We think not!

Let's get on with it!

Gather:

*Sugar Pine Cones (or another variety that is thin with flat scales)

*White acrylic paint

*Black acrylic paint

*Paint brushes

*Fishing wire

*Cookie sheet

Create:

1. Place pine cone on cookie sheet. Turn oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Place pine cone in oven for about 10-12 minutes. This will dry the pine cone out but not open the scales too much. You may have a few scales open at the top.

2. Let cool.

3. Paint pine cones white.


4. Allow pine cones to dry and paint black eyes and a mouth.

5. Use fishing wire to hang the pine cones. Tie it around the top of the pine cone, tucking it under any open scales. Hang in a spooktacular location for all the world to see!
