Painted Pine Cones.....


Did you know there are both male and female pine cones? Apparently the male cones are smaller and only live a few weeks. The female cones live for several years and is further proof that we would outlive most men if there was ever a zombie apocalypse. 



I had a bag of pine cones sitting around and just had an urge to dress them up a bit. 
I mean every one deserves a makeover now and then, right?


First, I spray painted them. I went with the colors of my fall mantle that I shared here.


Then with a small paint brush I painted the edges of the cone scales.


SIMPLEST. PROJECT. EVER.



What fall crafts are you working on?

These are really sweet. I painted some pinecones too this fall but I only did the tips on one side. Maybe next year I'll paint some more.

These turned out so cute! Who knew that male pinecones were smaller and didn't live as long. It's about time the females get some props. You know like the male cardinals and male ducks are always prettier than the females? I like pinecones even more now :)

What a cute idea to paint these! And you could customize them for Christmas too! Very cute!
