An easy and fast DIY you can make are these adorable Pine cone Vases. I made these for some friends as a Christmas gift and they totally loved it!
What you need:
- 2 foam balls
- 2 Vases
- 2 shishkabob sticks
- white sand
- hot glue gun
I started off water coloring the two foam balls black. This lets the little spaces that show between the pinecones not be as apparent.
While those were drying I took my pine cones and a brush and painted the ends white. This took a looong time. Thankfully I had help from my little sister, but if you don’t, then I would recommend buying pine cones that already have some color on them.
Then I took the two shishkabob sticks and stuck them in the black foam balls. I stuck them about 1/3 of the stick deep.
You can see that my fingerprints are visible, so I held the sticks and repainted over those areas.
While the balls were drying again, I filled the vases which were from dollarama with fine white sand and chose a ribbon.
I decided on the white, because it just looks that much cuter!
Now all you have left to do is stick the foam ball with the stick in the sand and start hot gluing your pinecones on!
This was the easiest part and was done really fast!And there you go, some cute winter decoration for your house or a gift for somebody you love!
