Take a walk in nature and gather some pine cones for this easy and quick, budget friendly craft.
Spay paint pine cones in festive colors, good for any season, and turn them into a pretty flower arrangement for any room.
Collect bamboo sticks, you can buy at any garden center or some plants come with them, and spray paint them black, or you could leave them the colors they come.
Hot glue sticks to the bottom of each painted cone. Hold in place for a couple of minutes. Using a glass helps to prop them in place. Once dry, cut bamboo sticks to desired length.
Arrange in a vase and display. This project took a couple hours to complete not including time spent to collect the cones.
Makes for an ideal gift.
