Simple Pine Cone Decoration

dem_paDecember 5, 2008

I made 10 of these to give as gifts to family and friends. I painted a small piece of wood brown. I put one eye screw in the middle of the top for a hanger. I spaced three eye hocks on the bottom to tie the pine cones on and one staple in the middle of the piece of wood to tie the bow, greenery, and bell to. I painted three pine cones red, white, and blue. The red and blue I used the back of a paint brush to make a small white dot to look like snow was one it. Simple and cheap.

What a neat idea, so cute. These could be made and decorated for all the different seasons with different colored bows and cones. Thanks for sharing.
