About a month back, we had a huge wind storm that knocked down one of our enormous pine trees here on our farm. My husband has been slowly "chipping away at it" on his days off. As My 4yr. old and I surveyed what had been done and what still needs to be, she started to pick up pine cones- loading her arms full. This gave me an idea... Not only could I give her a fun project to do, but also get a Christmas wreath for our back door & from items my husband had put the discard pile.
Step 1: Items Needed
small pine tree branch cut to size
assorted pine cones
cardboard or newspaper for working surface
glitter or coloured sugars
bowl (for glitter/coloured sugars)
If an adult or older child is going to do this project, you can just use spray adhesive for the pine cones. I would suggest doing it outside though as spray adhesive can float on the air and stick to things you dont want tacky. Plus better ventilation.
