Glitter! Love it or hate it, the Holiday season isn’t complete without a little sparkle! Our DIY project today sees us getting messy with glitter to create a set of pretty DIY ombre glitter pinecones. Perfect for adding a little festive twinkle to your Holiday home decor, our ombre glitter pinecones make a great kids craft or fun afternoon DIY project. You can use found pinecones, or purchase them from your local craft store. Starting at the bottom, use a paint brush to cover the bottom couple sections of your pinecone in mod podge or similar craft glue. Roll the pinecone in your darkest color of glitter and let it dry. Move up the pinecone, using a lighter color of glitter with every step until your pinecone is covered. Once they are all dry you can set them on the branches of your Holiday tree, group them together on your mantle or in a bowl as a table centerpiece. Perfect!

I totally agree about glitter – it’s not Christmas without it!
I love these pine cones. In Australia we have really cool nuts that form after flowering, on many of our native eucalyptus (gum) trees. They are naturally shaped like a bell and are just PERFECT to cover in glitter, etc for Christmas.
Those sound gorgeous! I want to see!
Gotta have me some super sparkle, just seems to go with holidays doesn’t it? With all myriad colors of glitter, who can resist? Your pine cones look magical anyway you’d use them.
What will you do for tomorrow, such fun waiting to see. A surprise every day keeps me watching.
Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Think I’d better go turn oven on to get pies baked for the “day”. And yes they are from grocery store, apple and pumpkin, oh yum.
Have great day
Nothing wrong with a store-bought pie! 😉
