Hi! Today I’ll be showing you how to make some cute and easy pinecone Christmas trees.
Gather some pinecones from your yard or any place where there are pine trees. The pinecones should be pretty large and well-rounded, with no broken or smashed parts. You can also gather a few small sticks, which you’ll be using later to make little Christmas tree stands.
Collect sequins, glitter, stickers, buttons, beads, strips of fabric, pipe cleaners, bits of tinsel, and anything else you might want to decorate your trees with. Set these aside.
Bring your pinecones inside. Be careful to make sure they don’t have any bugs on them. Then, rinse them thoroughly in the sink or tub with cold water, being careful not to break any. Set the pinecones on a towel in an open place to air-dry. This could take a while, so be patient!
Once they’re dry, coat your pinecones with Mod Podge or a similar clear drying glue in a well ventilated area. While they’re still wet, sprinkle colorful glitter, tiny pieces of paper, or sequins over the pinecones, making sure they get stuck to the Mod Podge. Set them aside and allow the Mod Podge to completely dry.
Completely and totally forget about this project and, to your utter confusion, discover a large heap of glittery pinecones in the corner of your bedroom approximately 2-4 weeks after Christmas.
Throw out the pinecones, laugh, and have much more fun writing a (hopefully) amusing blog post instead.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who forgets about craft projects, discovers them much later, and has no idea what they are. XD
I hope you enjoyed this post! It was rather fun to write. 😛
Oh, there’s one more thing before I go….
