Pine Cone Christmas Tree
Instead of searching the entire town for original gifts or Christmas decorations, you can take a look at this do-it-yourself project and realize that it is doable. It can make the perfect gift but it can also look good on your mantelpiece or on your coffee table. It’s a cheap, easy-to-do project that will look good when it’s done. You will learn how to make your very own pine cone Christmas tree. You can make as many trees as you want. What you`ll be using are: a pine cone, glitter, hot glue, green acrylic paint, regular glue (even Modge Podge can do the trick), mini terra cotta pot (it costs less than a dollar) and a mini star. The pine cone needs to be painted green. After you apply some thin coats of green paint, let it dry for a while. After the paint dries up you can apply glue on the edge of each pine cone spine and then you can sprinkle the glitter that you chose. Let the glue and glitter dry then you can continue to hot glue the pine cone to the pot and glue the cute little star on top of the pine cone. You can even ask your kids for help; it’s an engaging activity for the entire family. You can also use some white paint to render the idea of snow and use some glitter on the star as well as on the fake snow. You can add Christmas ornaments on the pine cone tree by attaching different small beads.
