Our DIY Painted Pine Cones project came about after a trip to a local home store. My sister and I saw a bag of gorgeous silver painted pine cones that I really wanted to add to my Christmas decoration collection. But you would not believe how expensive they were! I knew we could make some that would be just as pretty as the ones in the store for a fraction of the cost and I sure was right!
How to Make DIY Painted Pine Cones
You will need:
A word about the supplies you’ll need – I used Red spray paint with a satin finish and a pretty Brushed Nickel Metallic spray paint from Krylon. Both of the spray paints had primer in them and I am glad they did. I was going for a full coverage look and with the +primer spray paint I only needed a couple of coats on paint to achieve that. I have been collecting the pines cones all year from a pine tree near my house but they sell bags of pine cones at craft stores during the Holidays if you aren’t so lucky. In the picture here you’ll see I also tried white spray paint but I didn’t think those pine cones looked very pretty. I would definitely go with a pretty holiday color or one of these great metallic paints.
The crafting part of this project is super easy — just spray paint the pine cones.
This is how my red pine cones turned out.
And I couldn’t love my brushed nickel pine cones more! They are even prettier than the ones I saw in the store.
These DIY Painted Pines Cones are so pretty. They are going to look great with my red, white and silver Christmas Decoration theme.
And I also think these pretty painted pine cones would be a great DIY Christmas Gift! Next year … glitter!!!
