We collected a bag of pinecones last year when we were at Cameron Highlands.

We made a few DIY crafts with our pinecones – a little girl and also hedgehogs.

This December holiday, we decided to make some Christmas trees using them.

  • Glitter glue

  • Beads
  • Paper cupcake holders

1. Mix the blue and yellow acrylic paints to get green colour. I also add glitter glue to the green paint so that Dot and I can stick the sparkling glitters onto our mini trees.

2. Paint the pinecones and then add some beads and glitters bits onto the not-yet-dried pinecones.

3. To hold the pinecones in an upright position to dry properly, I cut a hole in the paper cupcakes and place the pinecones on the holes. The cupcake holders can also be used as stands for the pinecones.
