Make Pine Cone Decorations!
When autumn arrives, there's no shortage of pine cones falling off of trees. Rather than harass the kids to rake them up and throw them away, why not turn these little cones into something beautiful and useful for the holiday mantel or the Christmas tree?
This holiday craft only requires a few pine cones, some paint and glue and a few cotton balls. The result - either a whimsical mini Christmas tree or a series of ornaments – will certainly spruce up your holiday decorations. And the best part is, the kids will look forward to raking up the pine cones!
What You Need:
- Pine cones – various shapes and sizes will work
- Green paint
- Bowls for paint
- Craft glue
- Silver and gold glitter
- Sequins – various shapes such as circle and snowflakes
- Cotton balls
- Red ribbon (optional)
