I purchased a bag of pine cones, cinnamon sticks and these red and green things. The whole bag was only $2.99 and it still smelled like cinnamon.
I found this idea in an old book of Christmas ideas I purchased from Dime & Dollar thrift shop. All you do is take your pine cone and brush it with some Mod Podge. Roll it into a dish of regular salt or use a spoon to sift over the pine cone until it is completely covered. Let it dry. That is it - super simple.
I made up several of these. Justine's wedding is coming up and she is having a Winter Wonderland Wedding. I also made some ornaments with these. Watch the next post.
The extras from the bag: cinnamon sticks and the red and green things I put into one of my crock bowls and used the fabric bow from the bag to tie on the bowl.
I like the look and I like the ornaments I made even better.
