Week 24 – Pine Cone Mini-Christmas Trees

This week we’ve gone all festive, taken some pine cones and converted them into mini Christmas trees.

You will need:

Pine cones

Green paint (we used metalic but normal poster paint will also work well)

Large paintbrush

Mini pom poms

Glue or strong glue dots

You will need to:

Dry the cones out if they are damp

Cover your paintbrush really well in your paint and then paint the tips of the cone green

Wait for the paint to dry

Attach your pom poms (to look like baubles) with strong glue or glue dots

TOP TIP: Convert these into tree decorations with some thin ribbon, a metal tree hanger or some cotton
