In this country, it’s never too early to prepare for Christmas. In fact, I think I am perhaps a little late already and everyone else had at least a month’s head start. So I ought not to waste another minute.
I may change Christmas decoration themes every year, but one thing has always remained constant – conifer cones or best known as pinecones. I use pinecones every year, everywhere and in many ways. I string them, paint them, hang them as ornaments, lazily display them all in a glass or terracotta bowl...
This year, I decided to go even easier and make individual pinecone holders out of glasses and twine.
I can’t begin to tell you how easy this project is, but I’ll try by telling you it is very easy. All you will need are glasses, twine, clear glue and scissors. Your oven would also prove useful for a few minutes in the process.
I love one-step DIYs and this is practically that. Simply wrap the glass in twine and that's it - it's a complete makeover.
Apply the glue carefully as you go…
To dry best, you can use the oven at 200° F to dry the glue and keep the twine in place. Take the necessary precautions.
Wasn’t that a quick, absolutely doable, absolutely dandy Christmas decorating idea?
Out of season, you can also use these pretty, rustic-vibe glasses as holders of practically anything – pencils, make-up brushes, candles or maybe the TV or AC remote. Perhaps you know how I love the smell of coffee, so I’m also thinking of filling the glasses with coffee beans after they serve their Christmas purpose. It’s just the perfect color for the theme.
