Amy believes that everyone, regardless of skill level or experience, possesses the ability to create something beautiful, and Positively Splendid was born of her passion for helping others harness their innate creative potential.
For this project, you will need…
Name tags (I made mine using my technique for turning coke cans into hammered metal tags)
Spray paint primer
Metallic silver spray paint
Small baubles: ornaments, bells, etc.
step 1 / Spray your pine cone with primer and allow it to dry completely before spraying with your silver paint. When your paint is dry, gather your supplies to assemble your ornament.
step 2 / Cut an 18-inch length of ribbon, and tie a knot at the center. Slip your tag over one of the tails and slide it to the center of the ribbon so it touches the center knot. Slip an ornament and/or bell over the same tail, and then add another bauble to the other side, as well. Tie your ribbon in a nice bow. Pretty!
step 3 / Tie another length of narrow ribbon to the top of your pine cone, forming a loop for hanging your ornament, as shown. Use a dab of hot glue to adhere your assembled bow embellishment to the top of your pine cone.
These are so simple to put together, but they make such a statement, don’t you think?
Thanks so much for making me a part of your day!
