The girls and I enjoy doing many craft projects. It gives us the ability to each showcase our creativity and have a little fun.
One thing the girls are constantly collecting are pine cones. We always have pine cones in the house just waiting to be spruced up.
So recently when Annaliese asked for a woodland theme birthday party, I knew pine cones would be a must in the decor. So we decided to decorate the pine cones in three different ways.
Who does not like glitter? It is pretty, sparkly, and creates a massive mess. The girls love using it! So I placed glue all over the pine cones and let the girls go to town.
paint the tips
You can most definitely use a paint brush but I find it easier to just use my fingers. Take a little paint and begin dabbing the tips. I find this to be my favorite and gives the pine cones such a pretty look!
dip them in paint
Place paint in a cup, I have a cheap coffee cup that I use for painting, and dip the whole pine cone in. I used just my hands so it got messy but I do not call it a successful craft if you do not get messy!
There you have it! Three simple ways to spruce up pine cones in order to create gorgeous decor for either a party or for every day!

These would be cute to set on the kitchen table in a bowl. It looks like a great actives to keep the kiddo’s busy too.
Yes they would! I put pine cones all over in the winter time!
How creative! I love pine combs. My nine year old would love a craft like this.
Me too!! It is such a great craft and so easy to do!
These look so cute and like such a fun project!
Great post I did a project like this for my coffee table this turned out really pretty
Thank you! Isn’t it such a pretty decor?!?
What a cute idea! I would love to do this during the fall/winter months. And like Leslie said, they would look great on the kitchen table!
Yes they do! For the winter I have a beautiful wooden box that I put pine cones in on the the table. It is such an easy yet beautiful centerpiece.
This look super cute and easy to do! If I had young kids or grands…L
Thank you so much!
Fun! I am also planning to use pine cones in my kid’s birthday decorations (in just a few weeks) but since it’s a camping party I think leaving them plain fits best with the party decor. However, I did toy with the idea of painting them bright, fun colors!
Oh I love the camping theme! Pine cones look so great in bright colors too!
