Have I mentioned before how much I love Fall?! So many things to find and create with...like 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.
-miniature pine cones
-twigs (the more lil knobs and branches the better)
-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.
