How To Guide

Step 1: Set off to forage for some pine cones. If you can’t find any nearby you can always get them from your local craft store. 

Step 2: Clean any dirt or debris off your pine cones with a brush. You can also rinse them in water if needed and leave to completely dry. 

Step 3: Paint the tips of the pine cones in the colour of your choice. Paint the wooden stars with gold paint, feel free to add some sparkle with glitter aswell.

Step 4: Using a hand saw, cut your wood dowel into lengths of approx 3-6cm. Sand away any rough edges with a fine grit sandpaper and then wipe clean with a cloth. 

Step 5: Apply Selleys Aquadhere Quick Set to the bottom of the pine cone and attach it to the middle of the piece of dowel. This product is great because it is a non-tovic PVA that dries quickly! The adhesive will set in typically 10-20mins.

Step 6: Apply Selleys Aquadhere Quick Set to the bottom of the star and attach it to the top of the pine cone.
