Free Tutorial: Mixed Media Pine Cone Ornament

3 on cholla 6254 for blog gimped A look that is both rustic and frilly calls to me. I can picture a pioneer woman gathering pine cones in her apron and taking oh-so-sparingly a scrap of lace from a worn dress, a dress that reminded her of the more genteel life she gave up for the frontier. So I brought this sentiment to my ornament design, combining a pine cone, lace, and ribbon, and updating it with little polymer clay poinsettias.C-u finished w green ribbon for blog  6247 gimped
My free Pine Cone Ornament tutorial is a fun project that requires no polymer clay experience and no pasta machine (although I’ve included pasta machine directions). It’s also suitable for children old enough to wield a hot glue gun.
I like Fimo Effect Red Glitter and Green Glitter polymer clay for the poinsettias. Premo and Kato brands will also work. Avoid Sculpey III as the flowers will become brittle. The ornaments pictured were made with 2-inch long pine cones. Hanging length is 4 inches.
