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.
Items we used :
- Acrylic paints – yellow and green
- Glitter glue
- Glittering sprinkles
- 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.
