How to Make Rhinestone Pinecone Ornaments
My daughter and I love going on nature hunts to collect pinecones and other natural materials for nature crafts like these beautiful Christmas ornaments. Rhinestone pinecone ornaments are inspired by the children’s book “The Pinecone Walk.”
“In this rhyming book about Nature, a little girl and her grandfather discover treasures as they walk to gather pinecones for their evening fire. Soon the little girl discovers the best treasure of all… If we look around, there are treasures to be found! “
