There are two easy ways to paint pine cones: you can dip them in latex or acrylic paint, or spray them with spray-paint. Dipping pine cones gives them a vivid, consistent color, while spray painting them makes them look lightly frosted.
After the pine cones have been fully dried, de-bugged and opened, you can spray them with a clear acrylic spray, polyurethane or spray varnish. It doesn’t have to be a heavy coat, but try to ensure the pine cone is fully and evenly covered (don’t miss the bottom).
You can paint it in any color and embellish it with evergreens, red berries, or ribbons to make seasonal decor for spring, summer, fall and Christmas!
Winter is the perfect time to go foraging for materials as pine cones and acorns start to drop off their branches.
