Pinecone Christmas Trees – Craft Project

Pinecone Christmas Trees Craft
My mother and I decided to do a fun holiday craft together. We both like to drink wine, so we have plenty of wine corks laying around. And we wanted to put them to good use by making a craft out of them. We thought these Pinecone Christmas trees would be adorable to make using the wine corks as the tree trunks. Even my sons joined in on the crafting and made a few, as well.
