I fell in love with this idea when I saw it HERE and knew we had to try it!
I showed my 9 year old daughter and she couldn’t wait to get started. We had the best time finding pinecones … and choosing colors … and painting … and talking. I just love the way they turned out and how they bring a little spring to our cold February days.
Bonus? Easter centerpiece is done.
First I found the perfect bowl in Hobby Lobby’s 80% off section.
Then gathered up the rest of my supplies.
- Paints (we used acrylics but any paint will do)
I used bunched up paper towels in the bottom of the bowl to help the pinecones sit up right.
And we added our extra pine cones in a clear glass bowl.

I’d love for you to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!) If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
