Christmas Glittery Pine Cones Project By Connie's Spot©

"Christmas Glittery Pine Cones Project"
 By Connie's Spot©
Here are some really easy ways to decorate with stuff you probably 
have around the house...I bought those yummy cinnamon scented pine cones
 a few years ago and they lost their scent and were getting ugly 
and very dried out...I didn't want to throw them out but
 I didn't know what to do with them...then I remembered painting them when 
I was a kid...So I got out my craft paint and glitter...and went to town!
I had this cute Snowman Hat Basket
so I filled it with wads of gift tissue
and laid my pine cones on top
sprinkled a little snow!

  Here is every thing I used to make these
Merry Christmas Pine Cones
Most of this you can pick up at your local Craft Store mine was from Michaels 
Americana & Craft Smart Craft Paint in: Red, Green and White
Small Glitter Tube by Creatology in: Red, Green and White
Tooth Picks, Glue, Paint Brush and some letters to spell out 
Merry Christmas or anything you want to say!

        I used some paper scrap book letters I had, they just
happened to be in Christmas Colors...
This is a great craft for the kids on one of those days
when the kids say " we're bored"
just be careful because some pine cones have
sharp points on them, you could snip them
off near the bottom...so the kids won't
hurt themselves...I used hot glue but you can
use any kind of glue you want...for the cones with the
letters I broke off a small piece of tooth pick and glued
it to the backs of my letters and then glued the
tooth pick down inside my pine cones!
Fill a pretty Christmas Bowl
I added some candles and used some of my Christmas China
I don't  use my Christmas tea cups often...so this is
a great way to bring them out of the cabinet! 
I think this is so pretty!
So that's what I did with my old pine cones
If you have any cool ideas to decorate with
them, I'd love to see your pictures...
so please feel free to share.

♥Merry Christmas♥
