Pine Cone Christmas Trees

Again.

I've been busy.

Very busy.

And if I was a famous and/or organized blogger, my posts would be consistent and you would never know that I was busier than usual - because everything would be planned, done, scheduled, ready to go.

But I am not.

Any of the above.




I promise I will do something soon with new photos, very clever banter, and great evidence of my amazingness.

For today though, I'm reminding you that you still have time to get your craft on, and make some pine cone Christmas trees for you Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations.





I've sold a few of these online, and sold them at Vera's Daughter last year as well.





You will find the tutorial here.





They have such great potential.





Last year, I experimented with painting them.

And making them upside down.





I like them.

So this year I'm painting some white.

And flocking them.

Pictures soon.

I might even add a little glitter!





They won't be this sparkly.

Just like snow - with little ice crystals on it.

At least that's what they look like in my mind.

But if you're an old fashioned girl like me,





You'll like the plain ones best!




P.S I will be selling the new white ones at Vera's Daughter this year. If you're local come by and see some stuff!

I LOVE these trees. (I don't have one pine tree in the yard. Our last house they were everywhere.)
The upside down ones are just as beautiful as the regular. The flocked ones will be to die for. I love them all together in the greenery...it's so pretty.

Wow, Karen these look so elegant! I wish I was closer I'd love to visit Vera's Daughter. These look hard to make, I'm interested to check out the tutorial. You're so talented (and humble!)

Ooooh! These are so inspiring. I can't wait to see them flocked. I think they'll be so lovely!!!

I have loved these trees since the first time I seen them here; back a couple years or so ago.
Was wondering something. How do you pack these away to keep them from breaking into pieces.
I have bags of pine cones but I have yet to make some.

I've seen things like this and I think they're awesome. Using natural objects to create decorations is a great way to respect the planet.

So pretty! These would be awesome in my little Christmas village.

These are great! If I were an organized shopkeeper, I would have had these made for Christmas this year. Oh, well, maybe next year.
