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.
Here is Yap's....ummm, long armed cyclops?
Then the boys ditched the pinecones and tackled pom pom art.
A pumpkin bracelet for Mom.
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?
