Marker Monday - Pinecone Trolls

We have a huge pile of pinecones in our front yard from our tree. I've been thinking ever since we moved here that there must be something we could do with them. While waiting in the dentist's office last week Yip found a great idea in a Highlights magazine. We could decorate them as trolls. Great, just in time for Halloween! I'm not a big seasonal decorator myself but if the boys want to I'm all for it.

After the dentist we stopped into Hobby Lobby where the boys picked out google eyes, pipe cleaners and pom poms. Along with our giant craft box of felt, feathers and hot glue we created quite a trollsome group of pinecones.

This is Yip's One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Eater.
Here is Yap's....ummm, long armed cyclops?

Then the boys ditched the pinecones and tackled pom pom art.

A puffball alien. How creative guys!
Whoops, Mom got a bit carried away with the glue on this one.

I love this little guy! I just want to put him on the dashboard of my car.

Do you decorate for Halloween? What are you doing to get in the spooky spirit?

  1. How cute! I actually don't much care for this upcoming holiday, but I do love fall so I go the way of pumpkins, leaves, and scarecrows. That is I would if I could ever find the top of my dining room table! I'm still trying!


I'd love to hear what you have to say! I try to reply to every one of them.
