I ♥ quick and easy. I also ♥ crafts that require no particular skill level because I will often look for projects to do with my grandchildren when they are here for a sleepover. There is a gigantic pine tree on the side of my property that blesses me with thousands of cones each year - big ones, little ones. Not all of them get used but I do my best to make sure they don't go to waste!
To make this delicate garland, drill a small hole into the top and bottom of each pine cone. Thread silver beads onto eye pins and stick them into the holes. A dab of glue will keep the beads in place. I use my glue gun because it is so quick and easy. Use fine wire ribbon to hang cones from a string of beads. These don't have to be elegant - beads can be multi-color with white cones or green cones or red cones. Use your imagination and have fun. After all, if it's not fun - why do it at all☺
