During the yard sale adventures on Saturday I purchased a box of pine cones for $2.00. There some large ones, a few medium sized and lots of little ones. The small ones are about the size of my thumb.
I have several old old grapevine wreaths that were weathered as they had been outside for a number of years. Most of them have had a variety of things glued to them at one time or the other. After cleaning off the old glue I proceeded to decorate a couple of them.
Here is the first one: It is now on the back porch – have not fully decided where I am going to hang it. I would like to get some ribbon with fall colors and tie on it. Then at Christmas I can go with a red/green or what ever color to put on it.
This is a much smaller wreath:
This one is not very round – seen too much out door weather I suppose. It is placed on the front porch for the time being…final resting place is unknown.
Because the wreaths and the pine cones were rather dull looking I gave both of them a few blasts from the paint can. The color is a hammered copper.
I still have a large number of pine cones left…but they are the small ones. Hopefully I can go to Michaels on Saturday and get another small grapevine wreath. I still have large ones – but not enough pine cones to cover it
I only burned myself once with hot glue….I thought that was a miracle considering the amount of glue sticks I used in the process of these wreaths.
Enjoy the week ahead – we are supposed to get some rain! Plus grandson is coming for a few days during his fall break…Grandpa and I are doing the happy dance!
