A couple of weeks ago my 13 year old niece, Madelyn gave me some pretty painted pinecones that she made all by herself. I think they’re really cute and they work perfectly with the rest of our holiday decor.
Best part – they were super simple to make. Just gather some pinecones and a few supplies, and they can be created in minutes.
What you’ll need:
+ Acrylic paint in your fave holiday colors (or spray paint)
+ Paint brush
+ glitter or glitter paint for the tips
And you end up with these little pretties…
You can display them anywhere and in any way. I chose to fill an empty hurricane vase from our DIY wedding with them.
This would look even better with some sparkly snow mixed in, don’t you think? Unfortunately I ran out of my snow from my DIY snow globe project and haven’t had time to go get more. When I do, there will be snow added. 🙂
Oh, and here’s a photo of me with Vivi and my two nieces. They’re the best and we love doing crafty projects together!

Have you done any DIY projects with pinecones this season?
