Painted Pine Cones – LOVE this craft for a pop of Spring colors!
Note from Laurie: My friend Cheryl made this amazing craft with her daughter several years ago, and I'm so-so-so in love with it! I also love that this is a great craft to do with your kids (and now I can't wait to try it.) Thank you so much Cheryl for sharing ~ it's perfect!
I fell in love with this idea when I saw it HERE and knew we had to try it!
I showed my then 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 late Winter days.
Bonus? Our 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.
Painted Pine Cone Supplies:
- paints (we used acrylics, but any paint can work)
To get started with this craft, all you really have to do is grab your paints and get to work. Simply paint the outsides of the pine cones and then place a brighter color near the middle to represent the middle of the “flower”.
These turned out SO well and the colors really stood out on the pine cones too!
Allow them to dry thoroughly after painting and then arrange as you'd like.
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.
