Table Centerpiece

My turn to share my project using Kreaxions punches. This time I actually used the awesome circle cutter, (just love this tool).



I purchased the goblets at the Dollar Store, measured the top and then cut out 2 red circles that would fit over the top of the glass. Beforehand I bleached the pinecones. If you never have done that before it is so cool. I put bleach in a tupperware bowl, the bowls gets cleaned as well, and then dropped in the pinecones. I left mine in for a full day, when you take them out you will have bleached cones.

I used hot glue to attach the pinecones to the center of the red circles. You can stop right there and not add anymore but for me, I needed more so I added some sprigs I purchased last year and some small pinecones as well. Have fun and be creative.

You can add the purchased snow or you can do as I did and make your own. If you rub 2 styrofoam balls together, you get what looks like snow. Make as much as you want. I also added a little bit of glitter to the snow and put that in the glass.

To finish it off, put hot glue around the rim of the glass and put your red circle upside down, so the pinecones are inside the glass. Turn it upside down and your snow will fall on the pinecones. Add some candles to the top and you are done.

This was so easy, cheap and fun to make. I hope if you make one you come back and tell me so I can see yours.
