Easy Framed Pine cones

fall craft idea using pine cones

this craft is great for little helpers. so gather your littles and let’s get started!

SUPPLIES: pine cones, hot glue gun, ribbon, frame, and GlueGlider Pro+ {optional}.

i used the yummy cinnamon scented pine cones from the store BUT you can totally go out in your backyard and gather pine cones from the ground. {this is where your little helpers come in handy!} that is, if you’re lucky enough to live close to a pine tree…..which i am not so lucky.

winter craft idea

1. with your frame on the floor, arrange your pine cones and stagger the height. use an odd number of pine cones {i used 7} so that it is visibly pleasing.

2. roughly measure how much ribbon you’ll need to reach the frame and then add 2″. cut a piece of ribbon for each pine cone.

3. hot glue one end of each strip of ribbon to a pine cone.

4. flip frame over so that the back of the frame is up. make sure all pine cones are in place and place the ribbon under the frame. {so that the ribbon is against the “right” side of the frame}

5. then with your GlueGlider Pro+, run a small strip of adhesive along the back of the frame where each end of the ribbon wraps around. note: you could also use a hot glue gun for this. i chose to use the GlueGlider for a flat adhesive so that it laid flush with the wall.

6. fold the ribbon ends over the adhesive and you’re done!

    I’m planning on making something for my mom for Christmas that would be similar, only I won’t attach the ribbons to the frame, rather just gather them together with a bow. I could definitely use this for that…and for a million other things!

    I would use the Glue Glider Pro in my card making, scrapbooking, altered art, and any other place where glue tape can be used. I so want to win this, have been wanting to try this glider since I first saw them.

    What would I use the glue on? Well I definitely could have used it on these pictures I was trying to tape onto a board today! In the future I could use it on many crafts with the kids.

    I’m sure I’ll use this on many projects but the one I know I’ll use on is the “Gifts in a Jar” I’ll make my sister for Christmas. I always give her some homemade mixes in canning jars, decorated with a homemade label and recipe. The next fall she uses the jars in canning and then I get them back filled with her goodies.

    I could see using this in organizing around the house. I’m hoping to recycle some baby food jars to make herb and spice jars – this would be great for the labels. I also make lots of cards where this would come in handy (especially for those types of paper tape doesn’t stick to nicely).
