Directions
1
Cut the felt sheet lengthwise into 4 equal strips. Snip 1/2” cuts into one side of each strip at 3/4” intervals to achieve a “fringed” effect. Round the corners of each “fringed” section with the precision scissors, so that the strip of felt has a scalloped look.

2 Starting at the short end, roll up one strip of felt until it’s approximately 1/2” in diameter; secure the inside tail in place with a dab of hot glue. Glue the felt roll to the small tip of the Styrofoam egg. Wrap the outside tail of the felt roll around the egg and hold it in place with straight pins.

3 Wrap the remaining scalloped-edged felt strips around the egg form, overlapping the edges slightly and securing strips with pins until you have covered the entire egg. (Note: You may need to snip the felt at times to get the proper positioning, especially when you get closer to the base of the egg.)

4 At the base of the egg, snip the scallops into individual pieces and apply them evenly around the base with hot glue.

5 Secure your ribbon to the bottom of the pinecone with a dab of hot glue and two or three straight pins.

Makes: 1 pinecone
