Painted Pine Cones



I love decorating the house with pine cones for the Christmas holidays.

I place them in the Christmas tree, make mini Christmas trees out of them, I place them in bowls on tables all over the house, and I also use them as table settings.

Today I will be showing you how I painted white "snow" on my pine cones and how they look after I painted a few in gold. You can also use green paint to paint the entire pine cone green to make mini Christmas trees.






You can paint the entire pinecone white, but I like to just paint the edges with "snow"

And on a few I wrap red bows, you can hang them from the tree this way.



I also paint some of them gold, and I use the gold painted ones as table settings and as decorations for wrapped presents.




Enjoy!!

Hi Kim. Hope all is going great for you and that you are enjoying the pre-holidays. You know that I used to do what you are doing now with the pine cones. We have tons of pine cones out in the back yard from our pine trees but I just don't do it any more. It was a yearly thing for me to do. Perhaps I'll take a walk out back and see what there is laying around. Enjoy your fun, thanks for sharing. Looks great too.
