Gilded Pinecones

 It's that time again. Holiday's are fast approaching and it's time to start decorating. This idea looks fun and easy and I will be trying it out this weekend. Happy decorating....
Tools and Materials
  • Pinecones
  • Screw eyes
  • Wire
  • Gold paint
  1. In a ventilated area, line a surface with plastic and then paper. Secure a rod across an open cardboard box. 
  2. Insert a screw eye into base of each pinecone. Attach a 10-inch-long wire to each screw eye. 
  3. Stir gold paint. Wearing gloves, dip pinecones to coat; hang on rod in box. Let dry (at least 1 day). 
  4. Remove wire; thread with ribbon.
