I seem to be in a pine cone trance this year.
Pine cones are fairly easy to find and inexpensive. They’re readily seen in Fall and Winter creations. I tried to decorate for Christmas but wanted to keep it more winter friendly. When Christmas is over you lose the need for Santa and his reindeer. I want to be able to enjoy my decorations longer then a few weeks or even a month. So pack away Santa and his reindeer and bring on pine cones. Are you with me?
If you would like to make a pine cone tree this is how you do it.
One styrofoam tree form
Hot Glue Gun
Hot Glue Gun
Needle nose pliers
Step One: Using needle nose pliers pull off the petals of the pine cones and set aside. Try to grab as close to the stem as possible and gently tug.
Step Two: After removing petals, hot glue the petals on to the tree form. Watch out for the hot glue it can burn you.
Step Three: Remove stray glue fibers hanging from the tree. You can simply melt them using a heat tool or pick them off with your fingers.
Tree forms come in many different sizes and colors. Mix and match tree sizes for a super cute centerpiece for your Christmas get together.
This little tree makes a wonderful Christmas table decoration.
