DIY Time With Mollie: Metallic Pine Cones & Pumpkins 9/30

wkrqfallback2

 

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!

Here’s how: 

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: 

Paint brushes.

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!!
