Supplies

  • 1 Pine Cone (per flower)

  • Plastic Tub (like from margarine)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pencil

How to Make a Pine Cone Flower

Step 1: Place the tub on the aluminum foil and wrap the foil around the tub. Fold over the end into the inside of the tub to hold in place and cover the rim.

Tip: If you use paper instead of foil, just use double stick tape to hold it in place. Fold the end of the paper into the tub and tape in place.

Step 2: Glue the pine cone into the plastic tub.

Tip: If you have a smaller pine cone, just build up the inside of the tub with flower foam and then stick the pine cone in a bit to hold in place.

Step 3: Cut the tissue paper into 1 1/2 inch squares. Place the eraser end of the pencil in the middle of the square and twist the tissue paper by twirling the pencil.

Step 4: Dip the pointed end of the tissue paper into glue and stick it between the pine cone petals. Repeat this until the pine cone is completely covered with colored tissue paper.

Step 5: Cut leaves from the green paper and glue in place.

Step 6: Wrap a ribbon or place a bow on the outside of the pot.

You can make several smaller Hyacinths and create a complete flower pot of different colors.
