Of course we had to stop...
And pick up more pinecones!
I left the sack of pinecones in the kitchen, and look who came out to visit with our new pinecone friends!?
ORIGINALLY POSTED DECEMBER 11, 2011
I was walking through the garden with my wee Bloom this morning and heard a small rustling of leaves. Our attention was drawn down to the roots of a great pine tree.
Nestled among the roots, pine needles and fallen leaves were these two little fellows, doing their best disguise themselves among the pinecones.
Then glue your bead to the top of the pine-cone, glue the hat to the top of the wooden bead and mittens to the ends of the pipe-cleaner arms. Finally, if you wish, you can paint or draw little faces. For these gnomes I used colored pencils to draw the faces, and I think it worked out nicely. Don't you?
