We didn't get a Christmas tree this year, so I decided to make a miniature tree out of pine cones. This was inspired by Natalie from Elementary Art Fun. Follow along if you want to make one and display it in your room PREPARATION How to use platter: Just mix water and stir in a disposable container and it will dry very quickly! It took about 20 mintues for this project. After that you can decorate. INSTRUCTION First, paint the pine cones green and add glitter. Then mix up a bucket of Plater of Paris and plop a glob for each tree. Then stick the trees in the "snow" platter. To decorate, you can cut old necklaces to make ornaments and glue it with tacky glue.
