Pine cone Flowers and Burlap

Pine Cone Flowers and Burlap

Hi everyone!  Hope you all had a great weekend! This weekend Mr. OMT and I decided to take a break and go to the cabin to get away and celebrate our anniversary. While Mr. OMT was out fishing, I enjoyed a few do it yourself magazines and fell in love with a article on making pine cone flowers, since we were surrounded by pine cones, I quickly grabbed a bag and went out front and collected several pine cones.
Although,  I loved the idea in the magazine called "find your place",  I was anxious to try my hand at this.  It said to cut though the pine cone, I wasn't having much luck with that,  I ended up taking it apart, painting the petals and then hot gluing them together and shaping them into a flower.  I  decided to decorate a paper mache' box I had laying around and covered it in?....yes, my favorite burlap.  I also used the burlap to make the leaves.

 

 

I used white acrylic paint to paint the petals and a little around the burlap leaves 

added some twine

and covered the edges with some embroidery lace
 
 This was a very easy and fun project and it cost me nothing to make.   I can't wait to do the idea in the magazine.  Maybe for my next event?
