Good morning everyone!
For the next two weeks I am visiting my parents – my sisters and I get together every year to create & sell beautiful Christmas wreaths, it’s a wonderful time to get together with my siblings and have some wonderful bonding time.
While I’m here, I have a few Christmas crafts I am creating with my mom to decorate our homes for the holidays! A few days ago we sat down to create some simple glittered pinecones. Although this is a pretty straightforward project, I thought I would share how we about creating them! So curl up with a mug of coconut hot chocolate, turn on some Christmas music, and enjoy!
To create glitter pinecones you will need:
Glitter in your colour of choice!
Mod Podge or craft glue
A toothbrush or paintbrush
Wax paper and/or plates
To prepare, place enough wax paper to cover your work space. I used a couple of pieces so I could keep transferring my workspace over to re-sprinkle leftover glitter that didn’t adhere.
The first thing you want to do is dip your toothbrush (Hopefully not one you use on a daily bases to clean your teeth) in your glue and brush down the pinecone, using the toothbrush to cover the lighter ‘caps’ around it. Just do one or two pinecones at a time so the glue doesn’t dry up on you!
Using your glitter hold your pinecones in one hand and sprinkle down the pinecone, while rotating as you go to cover the glue you applied before. If you have lots of glitter you could complete the entire process here, but lots of glitter was left on my wax paper, so this is where I picked up the paper to sprinkle onto the pinecone on another pieces of paper.
Place your finished pinecone aside on a plate to dry! Ta-da!
I can’t say we didn’t have glitter EVERYWHERE… my two and a half year old nephew Cole pulled the wax paper off of the table mid-crafting. Sparkley floors are in this season, aren’t they?
I hope you enjoyed this craft!
Remember to ‘Pin’ to come back later!
