Teeny Tiny Pine Cone Pomander.  Whoa that was a mouthful.  And this project was a handful.  (but it was free!)
This weekend my Mom gave me a big box of pine cones, so immediately a pomander type project came to mind. Although I do love the end result, it was one of the more tedious little projects I have done.  I spent nap times for the past 3 days glueing teeny tiny little pine cones onto a styrofoam ball.  Good times.
Kinda cute? It looks nice in my spring inspired set up.

Here’s How To:
Teeny Tiny Pine Cone Pomander
Just get out your handy little glue gun, and glue each little piece on the ball.
You can use anything – Easter Eggs, buttons, flowers, I could go on….

Glue, glue, glue

Happy times, not.  This is how I felt about a quarter of the way through!

    The frown face is hilarious! (I’ve felt that same way so many times in the midst of a project) In the end, your little pomander/topiary is adorable and will be so useful throughout the year!

      Hi Nancy! I’m not sure where you can buy them…I picked mine from the ground at my parents place. If they are available anywhere it would be a craft store like Michaels? Good luck!

    Hi, I just found the link to this project so I’m a little late to comment, and I love your little ball and want to make one soon! Just to help other people who are looking for the little cones, though, they are Aspen cones, not pine. Go figure, the Aspen is more like a regular tree but they make little cones. And we get to have fun with them!!
