Sharing a super cute little pine cone Christmas decoration today that I created using Dusty chipboard. So in the last release of Dusty chipboard there was a chipboard sheet of flower stamens, well these were destined for bigger more dimensional things. They kind of reminded me of fireworks so I went about wetting them and pulling them apart to actually create a layout using them as a dimensional background, but once they were dry I started to play with them and realized once they were layered it totally reminded me of a pine cone. I knew that I had Dusty Pine Sprigs so the idea come to life.
'Christmas Pine Cone'
Looks like a pine cone right?
All of the flower stamens were wet then gently pulled apart and left to dry. To join them together to make the pine cone shape I cut small squares of chipboard to glue between each layer centre. There are 4 small squares between each layer.
The Pine Sprig leaves were also wet and pulled apart for added dimension and give more of a needle feel.
I attached the Pine Sprig leaves to the top of the pine cone and then added some ribbon, flowers and beads to the top. It looks so pretty!
