DIY - Upcyled Golden Christmas Vases


1. Start by collecting some pine cones from the forest in case you live in an area with forests around. Clean them and let them dry so they open up.

2. If your pine cones have some extra leaves like the ones I collected, remove them with scissors so they look nicer.

6. To have larger sticks on each pine cone, you can either get extra large wooden sticks, or do like me, I just added some straws on top of the wooden sticks and secured them with a few drops of hot glue.
