Christmas Cone Ornament
From the Designer: "Frosty Pinecone Ornament. Have your guests be greeted by pine cones when they walk in from the cold. Glittered pinecones are a popular decorative choice of the season thanks to how versatile they are. Their natural beauty goes with any home decor and they can make a beautiful and elegant holiday decoration, adding a charming woodland touch. This project is simple and can be done with the help of your children/grandchildren. Upon completion you will hang it on your tree or on an ornament stand."
Primary TechniqueGeneral Crafts
- Eye Hook
- Mod Podge
- Glitter of your color choice
- Greenery (snow frosted evergreen or holly leaves)
- Hot Glue
- Ornament Stand
Insert a small eye hook into the woody end of the cone. If you can't just twist it to start, drill a small hole or a smal nail to start a pinhole.
Apply Mod Podge to the flat part of the tips of the cone (I used a small paint sponge) and while it is wet sprinkle glitter on the tips.
Once it dries, tie a red ribbon thru the eye hook and knot it and place the knot at the eye hook.
Then add the greenery and a poinsettia with hot glue to the top of the pine cone.
