Vintage Inspired Pinecone Snowmen

Latest Christmas Project
Vintage Inspired 
                   Christmas Snowmen


I know what you must be thinking...
what about Halloween??


It's just that during the Summer
I found a large bag of
Spun Cotton Heads...


And they have been hanging around the Studio
for months now...
Moving the bag from place to place....


The only problem for me was I live in
California (well not such a problem) but there just aren't 
any pinecones to be found this time of year!


But then a visit to Target's $1 bin
there it was...
 a bag of small pinecones
So that convinced me to 
go ahead and give it a try...

They are so cute! The dollar section at Target rocks! I make some of these snowmen each year too. You were lucky to find a bag of cotton heads!
Great job Diane,

We had snow last Friday night, so your little pine cone snowmen seem timely to me! You must have the steadiest hands to work with all those little parts.

Very cute snowmen and sweet granddaughter in your previous post!
