Instructions:

The first thing you will need to do is to make sure that your base is stable. This log that I chose from our woodpile was pretty straight, but as you can see, I glued a little twig to the bottom to make it very strong.

Next I lined up all my pinecones and sticks to make sure that I liked the arrangements, and make any adjustments.

Ok, time to make some little pine cone lollipops! Now this part does take some time, because the stick must be held at the perfect angle for several minutes to make sure they are straight.

I just put a generous dollop of glue in the bottom of the pinecone, then hold the stick in for about three minutes. It takes some time but it will be worth it!

I used a drill to make holes in log. I made the holes about half an inch deep, and just barely big enough for the sticks to fit in.

This next step is important! Do a “dry fit” of all your pinecone lollipops. This means that you just put all the pinecones in the holes, even if they are wobbly, to make sure you like the way the final arrangement will look. This is the last chance to shift things around or trim the sticks to a better height.

When I was happy with my arrangement, I just put some glue in the holes and held the sticks in place for a few minutes while the glue cooled!

And that’s it! Not to tricky, but it does take a little more time to make sure that the glue is cooling in the right position!

I’m so happy with how this little Pinecone Forest Sculpture turned out, and I have up on the top of my wardrobe with plenty of other greenery and my old chippy paint antique mirror.
