Killing time with pinecones and paint

A few months before Christmas, my Grandma gave us a bucket of pinecones to decorate for ornaments (we have a little creative streak in our family… kind of trash to treasure status.) Anyways, somehow this idea slipped by and we never did it. The other day my sister and I were bored so we decided to paint them. We had an artsy-fun time… random moments are the best.

  1. We made ornaments out of pinecones this year! We painted them green and decorated them with those little puff ball things so they looked like miniature Christmas trees. They were also cinnamon secented, ohhh yes! “Trash to Treasure,” absolutely the best way to go.

  2. Oh my goodness! You have brought back wonderful memories for me. I use to paint these cones when I was much younger…Yeah, much younger…we’ll leave it at that…Anyway, you have done a wonderful job on the cones…I love the colors you applied. Great Job!
