What I really like to do is, collect pine cones. Then put them in a low oven, about 225 degrees for 15 minutes or so. Then I dip them in melted candle wax that was left over from candles I burned. I melt them in an old candle jar on the stove in an old pan with water, on low temperature.
I then sprinkle them with glitter, sequins, or whatever, quickly before the wax sets up. If you use a good smelling wax and put in a nice basket, they smell really good. Maybe add a nice ribbon.
it would be nice to see a picture we all have little digital camera
I have also pine cone christmas tree decor..My 7 yr old nephew picked around 50 pcs pine cones for counting practice and his mother liked to throw them away afterward ,she is not craft minded one and so I made them like in the photo.Painted them with gold,glue an old christmas ribbons ,gold pearl and a thread.
