Here's how to make pine cone people:
The two main things I used are pine cones, which I picked up from a local woods, and pipe cleaners.
I had wanted to use a wooden ball or something similar for the head, but I didn't have any, so I made a loop with a pipe cleaner and twisted it round the end of the pine cone instead.
For a simpler pine cone person I painted the cone with acrylic paint and attached a pine cleaner head.
I twisted a pipe cleaner around the middle of the pine cone and added beads for the hands...
...and did then same for the legs and used beads for the feet.
And then it's done!
