Easy enough to do yourself. This garland is made from Australian Black pinecones, and is perfect for hanging on a mantel, draped on a piano, or adorning your christmas tree. The pinecones are sprayed white and hung with fabric ties on a red rope. Measures approximately 7.5ft.
Things you need: Pinecones 1 quart white latex paint Floral wire Newspaper Things to do: 1. Wrap a piece of floral wire around the top of the cone loosely. You’ll use this both for dipping and drying so you’ll want it either well hidden in the cone or easily removed. Curve the top of the wire so that it is easily wrapped around the hanger.
Paint Dipped Pinecones: Just because Christmas is over and gone, it doesn’t follow that you have to give up all of your winter decorations. Bring a little winter woodlands into your house during the post holiday months with these pretty dipped pinecones. If the cones around you aren’t fully opened (open cones look best) dry them out in the oven on the lowest setting until they open completely.
Image inspiration! Create a scavenger hunt for a hike during which you collect a variety of pine cones which you later use to create a piece of art for the home or classroom using string and a fallen branch (which can also be collected on our hike). Talk about nature as art and/or diversity in nature.
