That Mother Nature sure has the market cornered on creating beautiful works of art.
I found these sweet little pine cones on a hike last week and they were begging to be crafted with.
I started with some jewelry craft wire,
twisted one end into a small loop,
wrapped the other end around the stem and cut away the excess.
Then I dipped the pine cones into my handy-dandy Mod Podge,
and hung it to dry for 24 hours.
I recycled an old necklace chain and slid on its new natural jewel.
Keep this project in mind on your next hike. I'm sure you'll find some beautiful autumn treasures to use.
