I finally get to use my pinecones I’ve been saving since March!
For this project I used the mini pinecones, not the jumbo ones, but don’t worry! I’ve got some jumbo pinecone crafts in the works! Yippie!
First, I found a frame in my stash of extra stuff I’m not using.
I love that this one is square.
Next I grabbed all my mini pinecones.
I patiently sat there and hot glued each pinecone directly onto the glass of the frame.
It was actually really easy and took me about 10 or 15 minutes.
I love that you can see through the frame.
And here’s the back of the frame. You can see all the hot glue!
When I was done I hung it up on the wall…
And then I stared at it for like a month.
There was just *something* about this artwork that I didn’t like.
Then it finally hit me. It’s too plain and boring. So I added an ornament from the Dollar Store.
I already like it about 1000 times better.
But I still wanted more color, so I added this ornament from Target (it was in a 4 pack for $1).
And now I’m happy.
Have you made any pinecone crafts this year? Tell me about it in my comments section!
