Hi, I'm Kimberly Seeherman, event design expert, and owner of Event by Fabulous. Today, I'm gonna show you how to make some incredible Christmas tree decorations on a budget. And to get that started, all you're gonna need is 30 dollars and a little craft energy, and I'm gonna show you how to make these beautiful dusted pine cones that are gonna look fabulous with this Christmas theme. So, to start, we're gonna procure those pine cones. Go pick them up from your backyard, or you can go to a local craft store like Michael's and get a huge bag of about 50. You're also gonna need silver spray paint, gold spray paint, and a little bit of glitter. I'm gonna use a pale gold glitter, because again, this is a vintage theme, so we want to keep a little bit understated. Alright, so to get started, this is what we're gonna do. We are going to spray paint the entire pine cone silver, let it dry, then we're going to dust the edges of that pine cone with just a little hint of gold spray paint, which is gonna give it that vintage feeling, and then we're going to sprinkle just a tiny bit of that glitter also on the edge of the pine cone, and what we're really creating here is a muted silver pine cone because the gold brings down the tonality a little bit and it gives that that antique silver look, and it's gonna look really spectacular on this tree. Finally, we're gonna turn this gorgeous pine cone into an ornament by taking some floral wire and just wrapping it around the pine cone and twisting it. And that's it, there you go, you have a beautiful decorated pine cone ornament that you made yourself. It's gorgeous, glamorous and vintage, and it's gonna look fabulous on your holiday tree.
