This evening the boys and I dressed up our pine cones. I think they look pretty good and I believe they will act as wonderful accents to a centerpiece or around the house.
Here is what you will need:
Some type of paint brush
Glitter of your choosing. I chose something that look different from the traditional glitter
(Please excuse the date in the corner. My kids got a hold of the camera again and turned it on)
As you can see I dumped the glitter on some newspaper so the cone could be rolled
I painted the ends of the Pine cones with mod podge and then rolled them in the glitter
The mod podge is drying but you get the idea.
Here is one batch of finished cones. I really liked the white tips so on five cones I mixed in a little white paint with the mod podge and then rolled it in the glitter.
This is a horrible picture but I couldn’t get the lighting right to show off all the sparkle. (p.s. see the boxes in the background?!)
There ya go. A quick way to make your Pine cones sparkle. That is if you have any or if you even want to..
