Played a bit more and I wanted to show you what I made tonight...pine cone snowflakes! I'm going to use them as picks in some wreathes I need to redecorate, but they could be used as ornaments too.
I used tiny pine cones I collected while in Perry Park for a scrapbook weekend. I also used my hot glue gun, craft wire, white glue that dries clear and snowflake glitter.
I hot glued two pine cones bottoms together with the wire in between, then glued 6 pine cones around.
I applied the white glue to cover the hot glue, then with a toothpick I spread the glue on the pine cone tips. Then I sprinkled with glitter. That's it.
I did eventually get my counters cleared off from the past two days of playing. Tomorrow I have to focus on the last of my jewelry projects.
