  • Hot glue
  • 2 small twigs
  • Small pinecone, between 1" and 2" tall

  1. To make your own tiny choir, first use acrylic paints to create faces on a collection of capped acorns and allow them to dry.
  2. Use hot glue to secure each acorn head and 2 twig arms to a small pinecone (ours were between 1 and 2 inches tall).
  3. For each songbook, use a glue stick to attach a small piece of photocopied sheet music to a rectangle of colored construction paper.
  4. Give each book a center crease, then attach the music to a carolers hands with hot glue.
