This is one of those crafts that when I saw it on MADE I had a "Huh...What didn't I think of that?" moment. So simple, yet so pretty. This craft would have been free, except I did not have pine cones in my yard or any where near. I had no need to worry though. My favorite thrift store had me covered.They were selling them for 10 cents each. I grabbed a bunch and got to crafting with my littles. We dipped them in red paint and then sprinkled them in red glitter. You can use a clothespin to dip your pine cones. It makes for easier clean up, when crafting with kids. We let our pine cones dry over night. I then used some red yarn to tie around the top of each pine cone.
I hung it under our photo collage, then sat back and admired the simple beauty of painted pine cones. Absolutely beautiful...
