1. Festive Pinecone Ornaments:

1. Start by cleaning your pinecones/coconuts to remove any dirt or debris.
2. Paint the tips of the pinecones with your chosen holiday colors. You can go for classic red and green, elegant silver and gold, or any combination that suits your theme.
3. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle some glitter over the painted areas for a touch of sparkle.
4. Let the paint dry completely, usually for about 1-2 hours.
5. Attach a piece of twine or ribbon to the top of each pinecone/coconut for hanging.
6. Hang your pinecone ornaments on your tree or around your home for a rustic and charming holiday touch.
2. Handmade Holiday Cards or Tags:
