Holiday Project: Pine Cone Wreath

In an effort to spend less time in front of the TV, and more time having fun together, the girls and I decided to tackle a couple holiday projects each week. I'll blog about them, highlighting age appropriateness, ease of project, cost factor, and fun factor.

First, Bridget and I gathered pine cones from various nearby locations. Lots of fun and she enjoyed picking out the "perfect" pinecones. Cost: free.

Next, we bought the supplies - a wire wreath circle form, light wire and wire clipper. Cost: about $5.

Then Megan assembled the project. Megan, at first, wasn't really interested, but then could not push the project away.

SO the cost for this project was very minimal - roughly $5 for a beautiful wreath. Bridget started out attaching the pine cones, but it was too difficult (and boring) for her. Megan loved it and gave it as a gift. Fun evening with my girls.

Next project: stamped holiday greeting cards.
