Well… It’s 90 degrees outside but that won’t keep me from celebrating my favorite time of year: FALL!!!!
Over the weekend, my sister and I walked around her neighborhood and collected some pine cones for a fun, easy and reasonable DIY craft.
You can do this, too! Or, you can buy some from a craft store.
If you decide to do what we did and collect pine cones from the great outdoors, make sure you properly clean ’em!
Wash pine cones in soap and water, pat dry.
Lay pine cones evenly on a cookie sheet.
Cook pine cones for 30 minutes at 200 degrees.
Let cool before crafting.
What you’ll need:
FolkArt Metallic Acrylic Paint – I used gold and silver but you can use any colors you want! This paint can be found at your local craft store.
Poly Flake Polyester Glitter – Also found at your local craft store.
Check out my short and sweet DIY vid below (ft. my sister’s dog, Stanley) for a quick lesson on how this is done. 🙂
Thanks for watching!
Oh, and HAPPY FALL, Y’ALL!!
