Turning my pine cones into Christmas decorations
In my last post I was getting messy making natural Christmas decorations with pine cones, glitter and paint. This time I am adding wire to the cones so I can attach them to the Christmas tree. In a world full of plastic, lets have some natural decorations!
How to wire pine cones
You will need pine cones, flexible florists wire, tape measure, kitchen scissors
Cut 40cm of wire and wrap it around the base of the pine cone
Twist the ends of the wire together to make a tail
Wrap the wire around the Christmas tree branch
Tip – not just for Christmas trees!
Use this method to attach pine cones or other woody items to wreaths and garlands. It’s almost invisible and more reliable than glue for heavy items.
