Nature Inspired ....I love the look of Naturals..
Birch logs, berries, bird nests......
These pinecones were so easy to make....
Time for a Christmas DIY!
They turn out a white and taupe mix...
I kept the the natural look by knotting
twine and gluing it on as
Here are the supplies you will need:
. a tall cylinder
. glass or cup
. twine or ribbon
. hot glue gun
1. in a large cylinder ( I used a Vase) add 2 parts bleach
and one part water
2. put in your pinecones and weigh them down with a
glass or cup
3. in 3 to 4 days they start to turn colour
they also close when wet
I changed up the water bleach solution on day 2
You can see the difference
I kept mine in the water bleach solution for
4 days then I laid them on a
tray to dry.
To speed up the drying process put
them in the oven on a low temp
KEEP AN EYE ON THEM!!!
Once dry they open up then glue on your twine
in the centre of the bottom
These are a fun DIY!!
With Christmas just around the corner I'm
dedicating this week to
