Gather Your Supplies

For this craft, you will need: 3 pinecones /birch bark /eucalyptus pods /peppercorns (optional) /sharp scissors /hot glue gun and glue

Start with the Nose

Begin by cutting the bark into a half moon shape.

Create a Cone

Roll the bark into a shape like so. Be sure it is wide enough to fit on the front of the pinecone. Leave a small opening on the tip for the nose too.

Glue it Together

Hot glue the cone together to look like so.

A Eucalyptus Nose

Glue a eucalyptus pod into the hole in the tip of the cone.

Make the Ears

Cut a bark circle approximately 1 1/2 inches round. Cut a slit to the center of the circle. At the slit, curl the circle onto itself and hot glue it into place like so. Repeat the process to form the second ear.

Embellish the Pinecone

Hot glue the nose and ears into place on the pinecone like so.
