Introduction: Pinecone Foxes - Autumn Decoration
These adorable and easy made foxes, light up every grey and dull november day!
With pinecones as tail and bright orange, you bring a piece of autumn into your house.
Also a superb craft with kids under a rainy day!
Acrylic paint white and orange
craft cardboard white and orange
white spray paint ( optional, but gives brighter colors)
hot glue gun
Step 1: Spray Paint Pinecones
cover the whole pinecones with white spraypaint
let dry completely - if you are the impatient type, cheat with a hairblower
NOTE: if you don't have any spray paint you can skip this step - it only helps to get a brighter orange later on.
Step 2: Paint Them Orange
paint the pinecones with orange acrylic paint and let dry
- again, impatience is cured with a hairblower ;)
Step 3: Print the Fox Templates
I made A4 scans of my templates for you to print.
but feel free to draw your own foxes! - just make sure the size fits your pinecones.
Step 4: Making Foxes
place the templates on the orange craft cardboard
and draw the outlines with a pencil with quite som pressure.
you'll end up with an clearly visible impressed line on the cardboard
simply cut the fox silhoutte by following the line.
Step 5: White Spots and Details
do the same as explained in the previous step with the white spots of the fox
glue them in place with the glue stick
with the fineliner, draw the facial lines and details of the fox
NOTE: I changed the eye detail of the fox to more fox like and less catish.
Step 6: Just the Tip...
add a white tip on the tail with acrylic paint
Step 7: Heat Up the Glue Gun
glue the pinecone tail in place with hot glue
let it cool and your done :)
NOTE: my foxes are standing perfectly, but if yours tend to tip over backwards, add a small flap of cardboard as support.
Step 8: Decorate Your House
The foxes are now sitting on our dining table along with chestnuts and more pinecones
and can't wait to be our company on a nice autumn dinner :)
If you try it - please leave some pictures in the made it - section, I'm curious how yours turn out!
~I hope you enjoyed your stay~
