Pine-guins, Red Birds, and Elf-cones. . . oh my!

Last holiday season Martha Stewart inspired me to construct Pinecone Elves, Pinecone Penguins, and Pincone Cardinals.  My favorite to construct are the Penguins - the final product was as cute as the Martha pictures.

Tip:  Don't buy pinecones, find a free natural source.  I had to buy pincones from Michaels, since Los Angeles lacks pine trees, which aren't the correct shape or smaller size.  Now I keep my eyes out for pine trees and stuff my pockets full whenever I find some.  (weird...I know...)  I even had my Mom sending my acorn heads from Northern California.

Get to it!
