A Holiday Sparkles Tutorial

I love bringing bits of nature indoors. Especially at the holidays,
such treasures add that extra sparkle to any holiday decor.

Create this unique ornament from findings in your own yard or
pinecones and dried flowers purchased from a local hobby/craft

Select varying sizes of pinecones.

Gather your favorite spray paint and glitter.

Cover the entire pinecone with paint.

While the paint is still wet sprinkle on glitter.

Allow the painted and glittered pinecone to dry.

Tie or glue your favorite color ribbon to the pinecone base.

Glue rose buds or other nature elements around the ribbon base.
