Let It Glow

Give a pinecone wreath a little glimmer with a dusting of silvery highlights.

Here's how: Cover work surface with kraft paper or newspaper. Spray-paint a pinecone wreath silver. Apply spray-mount glue, working in small sections so that adhesive stays sticky and doesn't dry out. Sprinkle on silver glitter with a spoon. Work from one end of the wreath to the other, turning and rotating to make sure undersides of pinecones are thoroughly coated. Shake off excess glitter before hanging.

Tip: Do projects over a large piece of kraft paper or newsprint so you can funnel excess glitter into a dish for reuse.
