Almost Christmas

Last weekend, I finished all my holiday shopping.  I was relieved!  And that's the reason why you see a post everyday for the past few days... hee hee!

Remember the Christmas Wreaths I posted a couple of weeks ago?  Well, I still had a lot of pine cones left to play with.  I thought of making Christmas tree ornaments out of them, so I continued to apply Stickles in gold on them.  Then I thought of attaching a smaller pine cone to a bigger pine cone with the Fabri-Tac permanent adhesive.

Then I attached these eye screws on top, drilling a small hole first for easy attachment.

After that, I added bling on top of the pine cone.  I used Glue Dots first, but I switched to Glossy Inkssentials by Ranger for the bling to be more secured.

For some of the pine cones, I added ribbon as well for more variety.

And since I used silver eye screws, I used a silver string to match for a more unified look.

And since I was giving them away as little presents, I just put them in a small clear bag embellished with tags, ribbon and tinsel stems.

I enjoyed making these ornaments a lot that I'm planning on making more next year.  I have 12 months to pick pine cones around our yard.

'Til next blog!
