Today is day 12. The last day of the 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments. I’d like to say that I saved my best for last, but to be honest, I completely changed my ornament at the last minute. Linda, from It All Started With Paint is the lovely lady who put all this together and I emailed her and asked if I could give her my picture for the collage a little late because I just wasn’t liking my last ornament, I knew after all this hard work that I couldn’t end with something I didn’t like! So here is my last Christmas Ornament of the year: Pine Cone Star Ornament. And then you get to share your ornaments with us with a link party! To make this pine cone ornament you only need a few things. You know how I like to keep things simple ;) Supplies: – Pine Cones – Hot Glue Gun
How to Make a Star Pine Cone Ornament
I used two different types of pine cones for this ornament. I’d love to tell you what kind they are, but I just found them at the park earlier this fall. So, next best thing, pictures : ) Both of these are pretty common, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. The ones in the middle are longer and skinner and much softer. I used those for the center because I jus think they are beautiful from the top! The ones I used on the outside is just your standard pine cone. I started with 1 center pine cone. and glued 3 of the regular pine cones around the outside of it. It takes quite a bit of glue, just hold them in place until the glue dries. Once you have those 3 on, I added the other 2 center pine cones and the remaining 3 regular pine cones. Add glue where you feel it needs it, and just make sure to hold it in place until dry because it will slide around and fall off! I just not to put any kind of hanger on this because it’s pretty large. Also the center pine cones stick out quite a bit in the back and that makes it great for resting in the branches, but you could certainly glue a little twin on there if you prefer to hang it. And this ladies and gents concludes this crazy journey of posting 12 days in a row and 12 different ornaments. Are well all crazy? Probably!
