So this post was supposed to go up last weekend... but with KD working full time while establishing her business, and this momma has been busy traveling, wifeing, and moming, plus some weird complications with the website, we had to post pone this blog post.... so sorry!
We only have a few more posts planned from now until Christmas, simply because we are taking time off to enjoy our friends, families, and just the beauty of the season, away from the rush of social media, and what-have-yous. But in the days leading up to the grand climax of Christmas Day we wanted to share a fun (and almost too simple) pine cone and garland DIY with you today. Something to take your holiday look up one more notch, and bring a sweet bit of nature or “nature” indoors for you.
So without further ado,
DIY Garland Supplies:
• Pine cones
• Faux snow spray
• Disposable box
DIY Garland Transformation:
Step 1- Lay garland flat on a old box or on any flat surface that can be cleaned easily.
Step 2- once your garland is spread out , you can spray as much faux snow on the garland as you’d like.
Step 3- Let it set to dry. (Continue on to pine cone tutorial while garland is drying.)
Help* the snow sometimes transfers, so you can use gloves if you’re worried about getting it on your hands. The faux snow washes off easily with a damp cloth or soap and water.
DIY Glitter Pine Cones Supplies:
• At least 6 pine cones
• Disposable plate
• Small paint brush
DIY Glitter Pine-Cones:
Step 1- Brush tacky glue on the tips of the pine cones.
Step 2- Sprinkle glitter of choice directly on the glued areas.
Step 3 - (Optional) If your having a hard time covering the glued areas with enough glitter; you can pour your glitter of choice on a disposable plate and roll or dip the pine cones in the glitter. This step should insure that the glitter has covered all glued areas of the pine cone.
Step 4- Set aside pine cones on a flat disposable surface to dry.
Once the garland and pine cones are ready and fully dry, lay out the garland on the surface that you desire. Secure. And then add the glitter pine cones and extra decor.
You CAN keep just the plain, minimalist look of simple green garland (no faux snow) with no frills except the glitter pine cones. But if your like me , then you can go the extra mile with the faux snow and add a center pieces, stockings, candles, decor pieces, etc which ever your heart desires. And then you’re done!
A beautiful, quick, and chic last-minute holiday pop!
We hope this inspires your DIY side, and gives you some inspiration for that one little corner of your abode that needs a little more, “CHEERing!”
Each project takes less than an hour (minus drying time) and can be completed in the time it takes for you to watch your favorite Christmas film.🎄
Check back with us Friday for some more love and inspiration!
