Here is the craft that was the inspiration:
Start with these supplies: pine cone, glue, paint, glitter, paper bag.
Mix white paint with some glue, and paint the pine cone.
Put wet, painted pine cone in a paper bag, sprinkle glitter inside, and shake it up!
Remove and let dry. Optional addition- Tinkerbell requested that we add rhinestones to her pine cone. Fab-u-lous!
We will probably add a ribbon and a little jingle bell and add it to our Christmas tree. Crafty fun!
We also did this little "Elf on a Shelf" inspired Santa on the same day....no step-by-step pictures though, just the final product! We used a toilet paper roll for the body, some construction paper, paint, googly eyes, and two strips of felt for his legs.
