Decorate Your Pine Cones With a Spritz of Gold or Copper Spray Paint
Adding a little gold or copper spray paint to a selection of natural pinecones will create a beautiful holiday decoration. Depending on the shade of your gold or copper spray paint, you’ll want to let a little of each pinecone’s natural brown color shine through.
If you’re not into the glittery look, you can simply spray your pinecones with a light coat of green paint instead. This will still give them some sparkle, but it won’t be as bold as the glittery look.
This simple craft is a perfect option for last-minute DIYers, as you can simply spray your pinecones without having to wait for the paint to dry. Just make sure you leave yourself enough time to let the paint dry before you put it up on your tree.
