Pine Cone Flowers

Have I mentioned before how much I love Fall?! So many things to find and create these mini-pine cones! I've been thinking of making "pine cone flowers" for months now, and when L and I found these miniature ones it was a done deal. 

Materials needed:
-miniature pine cones
-twigs (the more lil knobs and branches the better)
-acrylic paints
-hot glue gun and glue

First, choose what colors you'd like your "flowers" to be...we choose multi-colored! Paint each little pine cone as you like. Set aside to dry.

Next, paint your twigs a mixture of dark and light greens. Allow to dry.

Once everything is dry, you can assemble your pine cone flowers. Using a hot glue gun, put a little dab of glue on the tip of a twig. Quickly press and hold a pine cone in place. Repeat until all your pine cones are used up. 

So cute, huh!? Arranged in a little, antique bottle they make a sweet gift for a child or an adult.
