How to Make

  1. Paint the outside tips of 2 pinecones using silver paint. Leave to dry.
  2. Stick the two bottom ends of the pinecones together using super tacky multi-purpose glue. Hold in place for 1 minute and leave to dry
  3. Take one pine branch and trim the edges down using scissors. Trim the bottom of the pine branch the most so that it can fit easily around the two pinecones.
  4. Bend the pine branch stem into a curve that fits around the two pinecones.
  5. Take 3 red berries and wrap them around each other to tie them together. Place a row of glue dots around the stem of the berries and stick them in between the two silver pinecones.
  6. Place a row of glue dots along the stem of the pine branch. Slot the pine branch in between the two silver pinecones and hold in place for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Cut a piece of ribbon around 15cm long and thread through a gap in the pine branch stem and tie into a loop for hanging secured with a double knot.
