Naturally, pinecones are a great crafting material for the winter months. In the last couple of years, we have created a ton of adorable kid’s crafts using a combination of felt and pinecones. Some of our favorites include our felt and pinecone elves, squirrels and owls. This year we’re sharing our newest addition to the collection: felt and pinecone raccoons. Round up your favorite little ones for a fun afternoon of making!
Make a trip to your local craft store to find all the materials you need. Generally you will need grey, black and white felt for these pinecone raccoons. Some of our favorite sources for felt are Benzie Design, Felt on the Fly and A Child’s Dream Come True. Print the PDF template below to use as a guide for cutting your felt pieces. The only other materials you will need are pinecones and small black beads for the eyes. Once you start crafting you can follow the step-by-step photo tutorial as you go! These are super easy to make and it is a great project to introduce your kids to using a hot glue gun.
