  • Pine Cones
  • Extra Fine Glitter (multiple colors)
  • Glue

Place several pine cones on a cookie sheet, and bake for 40 minutes in a 200° F oven. This will kill any insects on the pine cones. Let the pine cones cool for about 30 minutes.

Cover your work space with newspaper or with anything that can catch the falling glitter. Although glitter is pretty, it is also very messy!

Coat each pine cone with glue. I used tacky glue, but any clear drying glue will do.

Lay the pine cones on paper plates and sprinkle glitter over the cones. Turn the plate as you sprinkle to make sure the pine cones are evenly covered with glitter.
