We all love making something using pinecones. They are readily available and easily added to any décor. You can do just about anything with them. I love pinecone trees but sometimes they are just downright plain. You know I love the look of glitter and glam in any décor so I came up with a way to combine pinecones with glitz without the actual glitter.
You want to know how? Just twirl some glitter chenille stems around a rod and alternate gluing them and the pinecones onto a paper mache or Styrofoam tree. Just look at the pictures and see how I did it. So quick and easy.
I put two silver glitter chenille stems together and wrapped (twirled) them around a magic marker (rod). Two made the swirls look fuller. I used three large packs of chenille stems for this tree.
If you use a paper mache cone tree, I don't think it's necessary to paint it before applying the pinecones and stems. You can cover any open areas by adjusting the curled stems. If you use a Styrofoam cone tree, I would probably use craft paint first with whatever matching color you want. Most spray paints will melt Styrofoam so I don't recommend using that, not unless the spray paint states it will not harm Styrofoam.
The pinecone and glitter stem tree would make a great centerpiece for a tablescape. I plan on putting this one in one of my bathrooms. I like to have decorative items in the bathroom. And the pinecone and glitter stem tree will add to the festive look throughout my home.
Christmas is almost here. I do have one more craft project to post before the big day. I've certainly have enjoyed my time spent holiday crafting But a crafter's work is never done. See you next time!
Happy Holiday Crafting!
