A twig Picture frame :
What to make this great picture frame. I
- dollar store frame
- Hot glue gun/glue
- twigs to cover frame and decorations.
You can use any size frame that you like. Best to pick one with a slightly wide frame. Layer your found tigs and glue as need -overlapping the corners. Finish with something decorative on the corners. You can cover over things to like candles and jars.
My yard is filled with pinecones and I love using them in creative ways’ Having a winter party or wedding? This is an easy and inexpensive arrangement to make. The hardest thing is finding a clear vase – then gather up pinecones ,branches and lights. Decorate with glass ornaments.
Pinecone Bird Feeder
My family makes these every year for the birds outside. I Glue a stick or dowel to the top of the pine cone then tie your twine tightly to a pine cone . I .use peanut butter to cover the pinecone and dip in bird seeds. But you can use other things like
- Suet or lard, softened.
- Vegetable shortening, such as Crisco.
- Sunflower seed butter, such as SunButter.
- Coconut oil.
