Next, Tresha Armstrong shows us how to create a Christmas tree using pine cones, giving a high-end look to your decorations.

After drying the pinecones in the oven, they're spray-painted along with a cone and candle holder. The pine cone scales are then carefully cut off and glued onto the cone, forming rows to build the tree. Angling the scales at the top creates a pointed tip.

For an extra touch, glitter can be added to the scales.
