pine-cone swan, christmas crafts, nature materials

To make this swan, you will need a a pipe cleaner, a pine cone, some feathers, orange paper for the beak and a pair of squiggly eyes.

Wind the end of the pipe-cleaner a few times to make the head of the swan. Attach the other end to the end of the pine-cone as shown below. Glue the lower part of the neck to the  base of the pine-cone. Make a small orange paper beak and glue it to the head. Glue the eyes on both sides of the head. At last, glue the feathers – one to make the tail and one for each side of the pine-cone to make the wings.
