Sponsored post on behalf of Juicy Juice. Enjoy this beautiful pinecone craft.
Juicy Juice wants to know how my family finds joy this holiday season! One thing 2020 brought me was a deeper appreciation of the little things in my daily life. My family has always connected with nature, making time for walks, hikes, and exploring the beautiful nature all around us. These simple moments turned into big meaningful moments as we found ways to heal and reconnect during this challenging year. We tried to bring home elements of the outside to the inside with this fun frosty pinecone craft.
My daughter and I love collecting pine cones that we find scattered on the ground beneath conifer trees. Our ‘collection’ began when she was a toddler. We went to our favorite spot and set out to pick out a few pretty pinecones for this craft.
Here are the directions for the pinecone craft!
White or silver string
White acrylic paint
Gather your materials.
In a flat plate mix together clear glue and white acrylic paint.
Roll pinecone in the mixture—make sure mixture evenly covers the pinecone. You can use your hands or brush. If using your hands don’t forget to wear gloves!
Immediately after step three pour glitter into another flat plate, with the mixture still wet on the pinecone, cover evenly with glitter like shown.
Then set to dry for 2-3 hours.
Once dry, take your silver or white string and tie it in a loop. Tape or glue the loop onto the pinecone.
Now your frosty pinecones are ready to be hung throughout your home for a beautiful winter display!
