During Christmas time we are usually really busy. There is so much to decorate, so many cookies to bake and so many presents to get. All in a matter of a month! Every year I tell myself that I will start Christmas shopping earlier so it is not such a rush later on – but so far i failed each year. Who knows, maybe next Christmas?
This DIY Pinecone Vase is such a great winter decor for your home. Great to give as a give, but also great to keep for yourself. Keep reading to see how easy it actually is!
What you need:
- 2 foam balls
- 2 Vases
- 2 shishkabob sticks
- pine cones
- white sand
- hot glue gun
How to do it:
I started off with water coloring the two foam balls black. This lets the little spaces that show between the pine cones later on 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 the dollar store 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 pine cones 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!
