Scented pine cone decorations

Every year we make glittered pine cones to hang on the Christmas tree.

We always make extras to give them as presents to little school friends.

Here’s how we do it.

What we do

First I tie the string on to the top of the cone.

You could use pipe cleaners instead.

It’s really easy to get the string in between the pieces that stick out.

Next spray the cone all over.

(You could use paint but the spray is easier and not as messy.)

Shake the glitter on top.

Stick the sequins and beads on.

Sprinkle the cinnamon over.

Now wait for them to dry and then they are ready to hang on the tree or give to friends.
