Because Everything is Better with Glitter

Back in September, the boys and I gathered up some really cute little pine cones while we were out of town for our family reunion....yes I have been saving pine cones since September to do this project:) I actually put the pine cones in my glass jar during the fall, but I knew they needed to be fancied up a little bit for Christmas. So here are my Glittered Pine Cones, and a step by step just in case you have been saving pine cones for months too:)
 Start with your pine cones, spray adhesive, glitter in any color you would like, and brown paper lunch bags.
Lay your pine cones out on a protected surface.
 Open up your lunch bags and dump a pretty good amount of glitter into them. One color per bag...or you could be wild and mix them all together:)
 With your pine cones on a protected surface {aka newspaper} spray them with a liberal coat of spray adhesive.
 Drop your pine cone into the lunch bag, seal the top, and shake it around.
 Carefully remove your pine cone making sure to knock off any of the excess glitter...and you have SUPER cute Glittered Pine Cones!
 I did mine in red, green, and white but I think these would be really great in all white or maybe a few different shades of blue.The great thing about this project is that it is easy to modify to fit your decor!
 I think they look great in my glass container...much fancier than the plain ones before {because everything is better with glitter!}
 And just because I was in a glittery kind of mood, I also did made some cute glittered trees {as seen on eighteen25}. I sprayed the cones with adhesive, dropped them into the paper bag, gave them a shake, and then hot glued them to some glass candle holders from the dollar store.
cute, quick, and cheap...my favorite kind of craft!
Have you glittered anything today:)
