This weekend was full of a lot of fun Thanksgiving and Fall crafting, from beautiful pinecone decor like we are showing you below to fun kids Thanksgiving crafts! I can only share so many things at once, so wanted to go ahead and give you some inspiration if you are getting your Fall table and decorations out.
Now I happen to really like silver and blue over the gold and oranges for fall, so I wanted to take some of the many pine cones that are available and pretty them up. Sadly we have no pinecone trees, so I had to actually PURCHASE mine, but Micheals had bags of them in the fall clearance items for only 99 cents. I did fine the bigger ones at Fresh Market though.
Fall Crafting: Glitter Pine Cones
First we spray painted our pine-cones. I decided to make one white one, one silver and one a coppery gold color. I wasn’t sure what overall glitter color we were going to do, so I wanted options. For the purposes of this blog post, I am showing our SILVER pine cone! Once your pine cones are completely dry from your spray paint, you can take a tiny bit of modge podge and a paintbrush and paint the very tips. Then sprinkle glitter!
I highly recommend using fine glitter and doing it over paper. We have glitter ALL OVER OUR HOUSE.
Of course I did happen to let my 3 year old play long as we did some glittery acorns too.
Because I am brave, I let Phoenyx have a turn.
Very, very brave.
I am not sharing too much on our acorn glitter thing cause I want to make sure it’s not leaking glitter everywhere first. But more to come on that! In the mean time, you can keep up with my thanksgiving projects and others from other great bloggers here!
Also stay tuned for some kid friendly thanksgiving fun!
