This time of the year, you start to feel the pressure because you see and hear Christmas everywhere and people are talking about gifts! You better start getting ready now, because it’s just around the corner! Next time you know it, you will be stressing over the last minute gifts and decorations. So, let me make your life a little easier with this tutorial.
Here is a great craft idea that is easy, simple, and cheap. Pine Cone Christmas Tree! I vividly remember making this in kindergarten with my teacher. I remember painting it white with multi-colored glitters and giving it to my mom.
You will need:
- Pine cone
- green acrylic paint
- hot glue
- regular glue or Modge Podge
- mini terra cotta pot (i got one from Michaels’ for 69 cents)
- mini star (optional) I used a wooden star but you can use star shaped buttons or cut out a yellow foam sheet.
I painted white on the tips of the “pedals” of the pine cone to give a “snow” effect. Too bad you can’t really see the glitter on the snow in the photos. I also applied glitter on the star.
