So I did it again. Yes, I plasti-dipped. Why? Well because I had a gallon of it left over from the last go round. The plasti-dip, having sat in my garage untouched for over two months now, was a bit on the thick side. I realized that to get good results I’d have to use larger objects with very defined shapes, like pine cones for instance. When re-opened the plasti-dip gave off the same smell of burning tires. However, this time the conditions were much more desirable, it was a sunny and breezy outside and the smell wasn’t as unbearable. I tied wire to the pinecones and dipped each one individually.
Some of the pinecones I used to make a nest-like centerpiece, some I hung on the tree. The PLASTI-DIP gave the pinecones a ceramic look without the fragility, which makes them perfect, durable, holiday décor. When you have a rowdy, Christmas tree climbing house cat, you come to value décor that can take a beating.
