On Monday, 2 of the 6 preset radio stations I have in my car turned to all Christmas all the time. Did I mention it was 76 degrees on Monday? It has been hard for me to kind of get into Christmas groove because the weather has been fantastic and the leaves are still brilliantly colored (example below-sitting in the drive through at Chick-fil-a)
Well, I decided to muster up some holiday spirit and give a Christmas project a try. Since I wasn't sure my heart was is it, I didn't want to spend lots of dough (or any at all really). So, I meandered through the tree line of our house and found some pine cones (Shout out to Hurricane Ida for making that task take all of about 30 seconds). I had to spend $1.50 on screw eyes, and $2.50 on spray paint.
Here is how it went down...
Stuff I needed:
How I did it:
Just screwed the eyes into the bottom of the pine cones-
After they were all screwed in a took them outside and made a little make shift spray boxey-thing so I could spray them all the way around without them being rolled over-
Then, just took a piece of ribbon and put the ends through 2 pine cones (so you could pick it up in the middle and have them hanging equally on either side) Did this 2 times so i have 2 separate pieces with 2 pine cones on each ribbon.
Tie a little bow and hang them over a hook in a diamond-esque shape and that's it! Let me preface these pictures by saying it is hard to make metallic gold look good with or without a flash. These pictures don't really do this project justice but what can you do :)
