D.I.Y: Pinecones Garland

To me, pinecones say rustic. I love pinecones! Even when I was young, my sisters and I would go outside and collect as many pinecones as I could find, we would use them to decorate our forts, make pretend dinners with them and of course throw them at each other. It was so much fun; even all grown up I can still find things to create with a pinecones... here's what I made...
Get outside and find some pinecones. My garland isn't going to be very long so I'm using about 20.

Lightly spray paint the pinecones with white spray paint. Once the pinecones are dry, spray a light coat of Aleene's Tacky Spray glue and then sprinkle some cinnamon on top of the pinecones for a very nice Christmas smell. 
Ta-da....! It looks beautiful and smells incredible.  You will love it too!  What's hanging on your mantel?
Lately I've have been hearing about so many inspiring people. I usually tear up when stories are told about incredible people, who do incredible things. Today on Ellen Degeneres a man named Tom Shadyac, made me.. cry like a baby. Watch how amazing Tom and Ellen are in this video below. You'll need tissue.
