If you missed yesterday's post, you can find my chat about prepping your pine cones found outside for crafting <--at that link.
You might have also read that here in Whimsy Renee's territory in New Jersey we never get snow. Well, today we got a whole TWO INCHES of snow! And then it turned to rain, boo. But two inches! All the grass was covered! This is few and far between in our neck of the woods.
Anyway, back to Pine Cone Week.
Today I present to you:
|And some falling snow, woooo!|
A wreath form (I used a flat 18" one from the craft store)
Berry picks from the craft store or another embellishment of your choice.
Hot glue gun and glue
Gold Spray Paint
To start, you'll begin gluing your pine cones around the outer edge of your wreath form, followed by around the inside edge, like so:
And then give it a nice coat of gold spray paint, making sure to cover any bare spots to make sure everything blends in nicely (but we'll cover up most of those bare spots, don't worry!)
|Sweet gold spray paint manicure. And cuticles, sheesh.|
Complete with some blurry falling snow. How seasonally appropriate, no?
And the best part? Not only did I walk away with just one hot glue gun burn, this project cost me less than $5 if I count using sale items and a coupon to buy the items I didn't already have laying around.
Check back tomorrow for Day 3 - Pine Cone Swag!
