Been meaning to post this the past few days. When my sister and I were in Michael's getting stuff for making egg ornaments I saw some pinecones in a bag and it reminded me of a craft I did when I was in preschool. Something my mother still has. I am sure most of you have seen them in some form. I got the pinecones and plaster and a box of cheap beads, and bells and glitter modgepodge that I will be using for other stuff. And I bought the tinfoil muffin cups (as I usually use a green brand that is recycled and unbleached but I did not know how it would hold up to the plaster) Day one I mixed plaster with DS and poured into cups after he had selected his favorite pinecones. (in hindsight I would go collect my own with him but did not think of it as the quality of the ones I got at michaels were not very good and stink of cinnamon.) Then after the plaster was poured he gently placed the pinecones in. Then with the stuff you see in the pic the next day we began decorating them once plaster cups were dry. I removed foil and he painted the base with glitter modgepodge and then while I worked the glue gun he selected whatever bead or bell he waned and chose where to place it. He found 2 gold beads stuck together and it reminded him of a snowman so using more beads I made one to add to the base. Since he only has the patience to decorate 1 or 2 a day I have left the stuff out to the side so we can get them all done with in the week. Those are the 2 he finished.
