If fall decorating is on your mind then I've got a simple little project that will spruce up your home in a jiffy. Today's project started in the clearance section at Michaels, of course. Isn't that where all great projects originate?
I'll give you a peek at the end result then walk you through the simple process.
First, I ran across the frame for a steal...
Then I notice these bags of pinecones marked down to $1.49. My frame needed 5 total.
Time to break out the hot glue gun...
This part is really simple, but I must admit that I am sporting a blister on my finger from all the gluing. Who knew crafting could be so hard on the body? On a serious note, there wasn't much rhyme or reason to the placement of the pinecones. Approach it like you're piecing together a puzzle. I was pleased that the frame was black so if there was a small space left between pinecones it wasn't obvious.
Need a few more pictures? Take a gander...
Earlier in the week I encouraged you to think outside the box in this post about storage solutions. Well friends, I took my own advice and the end destination of this pinecone frame isn't going to be using it as a frame! I have bigger and better plans for this beauty. You'll have to check back at the end of the month to find out the final plans. I'm co-hosting a decorating party and can't spoil all the fun before the big day!
Have a happy weekend, friends!
