Autumn tree of cones

Autumn crafts can be created from the most diverse gifts of nature: leaves, twigs, vegetables and fruits, acorns and, of course, cones. Cones with incredible ease turn into men, animals and even ... into trees! A smart autumn tree made of pine cones is so simple that even the youngest pupils of the kindergarten will cope with this task.

Bright multicolored napkins of autumn tones (red, orange, brown, green and yellow) and a well-dried ripe pine or fir cone need to be used for work, the scales of which are at a decent distance from each other. Wipes can be replaced with a thin corrugated paper.

We tear or cut the napkins into small pieces. Each piece, carefully crushing fingers, turned into a tight lump. In this way we make a lot of different colored lumps.

Apply glue to the inside of the scales of the cone. Place the lumps between the scales, alternating colors.For convenience, you can use a plastic or wooden stick, a toothpick or a match.

Make sure that a lump of napkin fits under each scale. For kids, this work is quite complicated, so it’s better for them to pick up small, well-fluffed, bumps. Older children already have the necessary reserve of patience and deftly handle small items, so they can turn a larger cone into a tree.

Done! The pine cone has become a multi-colored tree that can be used to create various autumn compositions, decorate a room or decorate a group on the eve of the autumn holiday.

If you attach a thin thread to the cone, you will get a miniature pendant. And if you fix it on a solid basis (for example, an old CD), you get an unusual autumn souvenir. You can make souvenirs from several "trees", fixing them on the same basis.
