Glitter Pinecones

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved holidays.  I love all the excitement and seeing all the fun festive items in the store.  I love the decorating and yummy food.  I love the company they bring, really I just love holidays, everything about them.

Christmas is by far one of my favorites, I love to see the snow outside, the fun items to buy, watching sales, venturing out on black friday, hearing the fun music, and so on and so on.  
But my most favorite  is seeing how excited my 3 year old gets.  
So this year my daughter and I are making an ornament a day for our tree we will go pick out!  

First up is our Glitter Pinecones:

I think I have finally found the trick to getting glitter to really stick.  I have tried so many fancy adhesives and the best is Elmer's Glue, who would have thought?
  We brushed it on the edges of the pinecones and then my daughter dumped the glitter over the top.  

I used the finest glitter I could find as I wanted the snow effect.

Once they were glittered I put them in an egg carton to dry.

Oh they turned out so pretty, even I am getting excited for Christmas, and getting our tree!




  1. Those do look pretty! I am going to try and paint some white and then do your glitter method. Wish me luck!

  2. LOVE! Thanks for the tip, I'm about to do this :)

  3. I did this when I was growing up. My mom and I would go pick pinecones and then decorate them. It is a sweet memory. Thanks for reminding me of it and how much fun it was!!
