To make the pinecone Christmas trees: 1. Make a small ball with some modelling clay; flatten it out a little bit and stick the pine cone on top of the ball. This acts as a stand to prevent the pinecone falling over. 2. Paint the pine cone with poster paint in your chosen colours. 3. Whilst the pinecone is still wet, sprinkle with glitter. 4. Dot with PVA glue and add more glitter, beads and stars as desired. 5. Mix PVA in with the paint to make it thicker, glossier and to stick heavier embellishments to it. 6.


If the Christmas pinecone is going


to stand on a surface that may stain, place a circle of cardboard under the modelling clay as a protector.


Et Voila, beautiful pinecone Christmas trees to adorn your mantle.
