2. Clear container (Burlington, $4.99).
3. Pinecones (Backyard, free! You can also find them at the craft store).
You can skip the first two steps but I do recommend them if you gather your pinecones from your backyard like I did
1. Place your pinecones on a baking tray, be sure to line it with wax paper so the sap doesn't get all over your tray.
2. Bake them at 250°F for about an hour. This will sterilize the pinecones and take out any moisture which will give them a really nice shape.
3. Spray paint your pinecones. I did this by holding them by the tip so I do recommend wearing gloves for this step. Be sure to spray paint the pine cones while holding them facing up as well as down. This will ensure that they are fully coated on all sides since they do have a lot of crevices.
4. Let your pinecones dry for a few hours.
5. Place your dry pinecones into your container. Be sure to do this gently as they are slightly brittle.
I hope you guys enjoyed this super simple DIY. I absolutely love the way these pinecones turned out and I'm probably going to make a few more of these to scatter throughout the apartment. I think that this is a super fun way to decorate for fall while still keeping it fun and colorful!
Let me know if you try this DIY yourself!
