Make a tribe of cute crafted pine cone elves to decorate far more than the elf on the shelf could ever manage. Pine cones, felt, brown pipe cleaners, a wooden bead and a bit of paint plus needle and thread are all you need to make your own pine cone elf
Add a pop of color to some pinecones! I love how you still see the original brown. I suggest using the fake pinecones you get in craft stores so you can enjoy these for a long time. These would be super cute in a wreath.
