Pinecone Nativity Scene

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving and it is customary to decorate the day after, I don't feel silly posting this now. I have been wanting to make this for the longest time, but I could never find a pinecone big enough. I finally found one at Michaels, AND it smells like cinnamon!

I picked up a set of mini nativity ornaments from JoAnn's and painted them gold.


After. Nativity bling!

Next, I painted the tips of the pinecone with gold glitter.

I glued the pinecone to the "snow" and hot glued pearls from a broken necklace to the pinecone.

The snow for this is just quilt batting glued to a piece of cardboard and sprinkled with white glitter.

Once the paint dried I hot glued the nativity people in front of the tree.

This project took my only a few hours (including letting the paint dry), and it looks and smells great on my corner shelf.

Happy crafting!
