Craft Corner: Glitter Pine Cones4 Tuesday, December 17, 2013


Glitter makes everything better, but red and purple glitter takes it to the next level! These glitter pine cones are a snap to make and arranged on a pretty platter, they make an elegant centerpiece for the holidays!

Glitter Pine Cones

We used 3M brand spray mount adhesive from the craft store, but any spray adhesive should do the trick. We went out in the woods for pine cones.

Tools

Steps

  1. Hold one end of the pine cone and spray with an even layer of spray adhesive.
  2. Put a large piece of cardboard down and sprinkle glitter all over the just-sprayed pine cone. Once pine cone is covered, gather glitter and use for the next pine cone or put back in the container for another use.
  3. Let pine cones dry overnight. Use in centerpieces or on mantels for a festive winter decoration.

Craft Corner: Paper Cone Trees4 Tuesday, December 10, 2013

These paper cone trees make for a beautiful accent on your mantel or around the house for the holidays or any time. It's a great way to use up scraps of paper from your other craft projects, too! We used different types of scrapbook paper in The Red Hat Society colors and we love how it turned out. Make one for yourself!


Paper Cone Trees

Use whichever size cardboard cone you like or make a series of three in different sizes for great impact! You can find the cardboard cones, circle punch and hot glue gun at your local craft store. A guitar pick-style whole punch would work nicely here, too.

Tools

  • 14 - inch cardboard cone
  • hot glue gun
  • 1 - inch circle paper punch
  • scrapbook paper in different patterns and RHS colors

Steps

  1. Use your circle paper punch to punch out lots of paper circles. Bend the ends of the circles up with your fingers a bit and this will help give the tree dimension.
  2. Carefully add a dot of hot glue to the top of the non-curled part of the paper circle and attach to the cone, starting at the bottom and completing the bottom row before moving up to the next row. Continue, working your way to the top.
  3. Finish by gluing your favorite designs at the top of the tree and optionally you can affix a sparkly small ornament or a sparkle poof at the top for a tree topper.

Craft Corner: RHS Round Garland4 Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Fun garland makes any party a little more festive. You'll love how easy this is to do and yet what a big impact it makes when hanging behind a food or dessert table! A great way to use up extra scrap paper from your other craft projects, too.

RHS Round Garland

We used 2 different sizes of circle craft punches, but you could use only one size punch. It would also be fun with different shapes like hearts, stars, butterflies, etc.

Tools

  • scrapbook paper in different colors and patterns
  • circle punch (or your preferred punch design)
  • red or purple baker's twine
  • glue stick
  • scissors

Steps

  1. Use your circle punch to punch out as many circles as you'd like (depending on how long you want the garland). We're going to glue the circles together, so every circle on the garland needs a match for the back. You can use two different sizes for a little variety, but it isn't necessary. Use as many colors and patterns in Red Hat Society colors for a fun string of garland. Scrapbook paper scraps work really well for this.
  2. Cut baker's twine to your desired length.
  3. Take two circles of the same size and add glue to the back of each circle. Stick them together on the garland with the twine in the center.
  4. Continue gluing, with the garland evenly spaced, until you fill up you baker's twine. Let dry overnight. Hang and enjoy!
