Every year our family plays a dirty Santa game. We have to spend $10. This year my husband had a great idea when he ran across a plunger at the Dollar Tree store.
He asked if I could decorate it and we'd tape $10 underneath it.
I had picked up some pine cones in the yard several weeks ago and put them in the oven to kill the bugs. The sap was still running and very sticky!
I knew what I wanted to try.
I had Donnie cut some of the handle down. He rounded the top edge.
I had cut a whole page of diamonds with my cricut cartridge. I used the background on another project. I had 120 triangles left over! (used 12x12 white cardstock)liquid pearls. They were really light, but gives a definite glimmer and shine.
Tim Holtz vintage photo distress paint.
I hot glued the diamonds with a small piece of vintage lace-each one all over each pine cone. Was a little time consuming, but so worth it! I used hot glue to glue them to the pine cone petals.
bow easy with stiff cardboard so I could make a bigger bow and spread the layers.
