Painted Pine Cone Wreath
- wreath form
- wide burlap ribbon
- pine cones
- floral wire
- hot glue and glue gun
- paint in your choice of colors
- small bowls
- small paint brushes
- Bounty Towels – for clean up (painting can be messy work)
Begin by covering your work surface with a few Bounty Towels. This will protect your table or surface from paint as you work.
Make sure your pine cones are clean and dry before you begin.
Pour some of each paint color into small bowls. You can either dip or brush the paint onto your pine cones. I chose to use a brush and paint mainly the tips of the pine cones so that you are able to still see some of the natural pine cone as well. I wrapped a short piece of floral wire around the base of each pine cone so that it could be easily held without touching the wet paint. This lets you stand it to dry as well.
Paint each pine cone and set aside in a glass or jar to dry.
I like to clean up as I go so now was a good time to grab those towels that covered my table and toss them, rinse my brushes and set them aside to dry, and clean myself up! Thank goodness for the Bounty Towels!
While your pine cones finish drying, wrap your wreath form with the wide burlap ribbon, overlapping the edges as you go. You may want to secure the burlap to the wreath form at the beginning and end with a dab of hot glue.
When your wreath form is completely covered and your painted pine cones are dry, attach them to the wreath as shown. You can add a bow or artificial flowers for more detail if you choose!
