Oh how I love these Christmas Trees I've made over the years with pine cones. Make some of your own.
Time: 2 Hours Cost: $7 Difficulty: Easy
These trees are made from pine cone bracts carefully arranged around a Christmas tree form.
I've used the styrofoam forms, paper mache forms and then learned to make my own cones with posterboard. Making my own forms give me a lot more size flexability. It also saves me a bit of money.
For many years I enjoyed these trees in their natural state. Then I began experimenting with painting them.....and glittering them. Now I've done them in many colors and states of glitteriness. I made that word up!
