Loved It, Made It: DIY Fall Pine Cone Decor

DIY Coloured Pinecones for Fall Decor | Love From Ginger

I’ve had these pine cones from Torie Jayne in my head for so long I just had to get my paints out and make some fall decor inspired by her genius.

I always seem to end up making things in bright colours, but you could make these in pastels, coppers and silvers or even navy blue and brown.

Imagine how amazing they would look in white! (Now I’m wishing I’d done that too…sigh…).

Step 1: Talk a walk and find some pine cones in various sizes. I brushed mine down so they weren’t too dusty.

Pine cones are the most intricate and beautiful seed don’t you think?

Step 2: Spray paint in the colours of your choice.

Painting always requires a bit of patience (which I totally don’t have!), so I recommend having an activity planned to distract you while you’re waiting for the paint to dry (making these would pass the time!).

I used three coats to get a bright and bold colour and good coverage.

Step 3: Find a beautiful bowl and arrange your pine cones.

You could place them on top of the wood in your fireplace if you don’t use it.

Or even bundle some in a vase for your kitchen.

    Love these – They look so great! I am like you though – When I DIY I totally get impatient waiting for coats of paint to dry so I totally understand how that goes. Last year I painted some mini pumpkins and they turned out nice but I had such a hard time waiting for the paint to dry between coats. Love the idea of using the pine cones – Would maybe like to try them in white and gold and silver for a festive table. :)
