Making Pinecone Candle Holders

 I belong to a Garden Club in my nearest small town.
We often have classes on garden ideas, crafts, and tours to unique places.
  It was my turn to have the tutorial on garden creations using items from outside.
We had some old barn board cut to approximately  18 inches in  length.
We glued glass candle votives onto them.
 These lovelies are often picked up by the glass candle holders, so
 we used epoxy as it needs to be a strong bond.


Started to hot glue pine cones that we collected from our
yards.

Some used large pine cones and some used small ones.
Others had brought some that were sprayed with gold, silver or
even dusted in white.

All the pinecone holders were different but all so beautiful!

The finishing touches were with nuts and whatever else we had  around the house
that was Christmas-y. 




Now everyone has table center pieces for Christmas or Gifts!
Have fun with these!

  1. Great idea! And if there is one thing I have a huge abundance of - living on the edge of a national forest - it's pinecones. ;)
