Few years ago, my sister-in-law gave a basket full of pine cones. She also gave me some paint and glitters. So my daughter and I painted those pine cones and made it part of our c\Christmas decor ever since,
The two below are my kids project from their Art class last year. EJ made this candle holder. An inverted/painted wine glass.
