yes, yes, i know. Christmas is over. But I already noticed a lot of pinecones on the ground and since i have a lot of competition (ants, squirrels, rollypollies, etc.) with selecting the best looking pinecones, I am already harvesting them.
Besides, I’ve been using these so much as holiday hostess gifts that I need to replenish my stock. Here are the supplies and steps I used:
*pinecones (harvested in parking lots and along pavements)
*glitter glue (I found these in clearance racks)
*small paint brush (This one is supposed to be a one time use, but i’ve been cleaning up and reusing several times)
Glittering the pinecone is so elementary that you know it was only a matter of time before you’d craft this one on your own.
Step1: Apply the glitter on the fat tips and let dry.
Step2: Enjoy them lined up on your mantel or window sill, in a basket as a center piece, in each guest place, etc.
There really is not other step than applying the glitter glue. LOL. I came across those glues quite by accident. I was looking for a spray glue and regular colored glitter to sprinkle on the pinecones. But I found those clearanced glitter glues at a price that made the switch a no-brainer.
Have fun with this super simple craft. If you do not have the time, I sell them on my Etsy boutique. Let me know if you are in San Diego so that I can hand-deliver them to you and wave the shipping cost on your order.
