We planned ahead when we were at Marvel Hill last Summer and gathered pine cones.
There are an abundance and a variety at Marvel Hill (unlike where we live in Colorado - and I don't think cactus would substitute very well!), and we seriously pondered if/how we could bring a Christmas tree with us too...
Anyway, pour some tacky glue onto a paper plate
Roll pine cone in the glue, then drop into a zip lock bag along with several Tablespoons of glitter.
Shake the bag a little, then remove pine cone to dry.
We used four bags with four colors of glitter. After the glue was dry (we waited over-night) Zachary hot glued a loop of ribbon on top, and we hung our sparkly creations on the Christmas Tree!
