Materials:
  • Pine cones in various shapes and sizes.  If you get them from outside, make sure they are clean and dry.  You could also use smaller twigs!
  • Spray adhesive OR mix 1/4 c Elmer’s glue (or a glue that dries clear) with 1 tsp water (or so) and use a paintbrush to apply it
  • Glitter in assorted colors
  • Ziploc bags (in gallon size works best and off brand is cheap)
  • Ribbons or pipe cleaners
  • Hot Glue gun
Steps:
  1. Cover working area with newspaper.
     
  2. Put a couple of tablespoons of glitter in a ziplock bag. The bigger the pine cone the more glitter you will need.
     
  3. Spray adhesive all over pine cone or paint on glue mixture, being sure to get in between all the nooks and crannies.
     
  4. Place pine cone in the ziplock bag with the glitter and seal. Make sure it is sealed tightly.
     
  5. Let your little one shake to their hearts content or until the pine cone is covered in glitter.
     
  6. Remove pine cone and set aside on a newspaper covered cookie sheet.  Allow to dry completely, up to 24-hours if you used the glue mixture.
     
  7. Repeat as many times as desired.
     
  8. When dry, attach a ribbon with the glue gun to hang on the Christmas tree or fold a pipe cleaner in half and glue the center of the pipe cleaner to the bottom of the pine cone.  Add any other decorations to the end you desire.
     
  9. Fasten to the tree branch and enjoy.
