another pinecone project

a couple of weeks ago I showed you some deconstructed pinecone ideas
(click HERE)

what I love about these is the complete lack of anything manufactured in a factory somewhere
(except the hot glue sticks I guess)


I used some of the wooden sewing spools from my collection
sticks, moss and pinecones from the forest
and glued the "deconstructed" pinecone parts to rolled up cone shapes I made from sturdy paper


miniature magic .... fit for any elf

I'm crazy about these trees, especially since I decorate my house with trees each year. Love, love them.

Elizabeth said...

I love these and think that my son Oliver would, too. Do you know of a good source for spools or is this something one must collect for a long time?

You are just too clever!

PAK ART said...

They are very cute...I'd also want to paint the spools with geometric designs to look like pots. Although I like the natural colors too. Great idea!
