Painting pine cones for our Easter tree

 

I'll soon be blogging our finished Easter tree but for now, I'm posting about the crafts we did in order to decorate.

Catch up on our previous trees and our family agreement to decorate the kid's tree all year long:

For our Easter tree we first made salt dough Easter egg ornaments. While snowed in yesterday we decided to paint the pine cones we'd brought home from vacation. Our own yard has lots of pine cones but the ones we found on vacation were really well shaped... so we brought some home!

All done and ready to hang on our Easter tree!
