The weather has been getting quite chilly over here. It's just about the time to pull out scarves, mittens and knitted sweaters. The season of layering has begun. And while the hands are searching for something warm I'm having thoughts of taking up on felting again. Maybe write a few tutorials about the basics of felting. It really is a thing that I am so keen on doing in Fall/Winter. I'm pretty sure you would love it too, of course, if you are not in love with it already.
Today I was looking at the spruce cones on my desk trying to figure out where to use them. Why do the spruce cones remind me of Christmas so much? Am I crazy to start thinking about Christmas when September isn't even over yet? Oh well, the spruce cones somehow turned out into a candle holder. I really love the way it looks in my room. It gives coziness and also works as a pretty Fall decoration. Again, it is super easy to make and I am even a little ashamed, it took me just about 5 minutes to finish. Gathering all the spruce cones around a vase/glass (whatever you have) might be a little tricky but once you tie them together it becomes rock hard. Good luck and patience! :)
tips: Double sided tape or even hot glue would come in very handy in this project. Unfortunatelly, I didn't have any at that moment. But if you do have, stick the pine cones to the vase one after another and then very easily tie them with the twine. If you don't have any glue you most certainly have a friend. Four hands are always better than two. Try to find the spruce cones that are quite of the same size. Do not leave unattended if the candle is burning!
