Today the girls collected a bag of pine cones to make Christmas trees to hand out on Christmas to family members. First we painted them green and added glitter. Forgot to take pictures, it was a bit messy, but we did it outside!

 

Then I just mixed up a bucket of plater of paris and plopped a glob for each tree and let my daughter stick the trees in the “snow”

 

 

 

Plaster is so easy to use, just mix water and stir in a disposable container and it dried very quicky! We did it on wax paper. They were dry in about 20 minutes and ready to decorate. The tree sticks right it perfectly! It is inexpensive and dries nicely like snow!

 

We cut old necklaces to make the ornaments
They glued the ornaments on with Tacky Glue

 

 

 

Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!!
And a very Merry Christmas!!
…And here’s the cutest little 4 day old Santa you have ever seen from my newborn shoot Friday! I don’t think you will need to leave him any cookies, he’s pretty ridiculously sweet!!!
