Add a whimsical touch to your tree with these adorable DIY ornaments. They all start with pine cones collected from the back yard. Have each child make a personalized ornament by adding a wooden bead face, felt cap, and colorful scarf! Because these little Swedish gnome ornaments are small, this is a GREAT scrap-busting project or one the kids can help out with. To cut the gnome’s hat, cut a shape similar to a quarter of a circle. We made ours about 3-inches wide and tall.
