Editor’s Weekend Tip No 1
Susan Penny picks up some cones and a bargain
With the weather forecast looking good this weekend, now might be a good time to take the kids out into the woods foraging for fir cones. Once collected, leave them somewhere warm to dry out for a few days. Then, using white acrylic paint, dab the edges of each cone with paint and sprinkle with silver glitter. Leave to dry for a few hours, then arrange in a glass bowl and place on the table, or you could wrap wire around the base of each cone and attach them to your Christmas tree. The lovely green bowl came from our local charity shop for just 20p. I love a bargain. Have a fun weekend whatever you are crafting.
