I have the family room all decked out for Christmas this year in pink and blue I thought it would be fun to paint some of my pine cones pink and add them to the wreath I planned to put on the mantel.
Since it's such a messy project, H volunteered to dip the pine cones in the paint....thank you honey. He used Behr paint that was already on hand to dip the pine cones in.....Powdered Blush is the color.
He screwed a cup hook in each pine cone, then dipped it in a cup filled with pink paint. Keep a stick handy to poke the pine cone down in the paint as it wants to float to the top until it gets loaded with paint. .
I had bought a basic wreath at Michaels to add my pine cones to.
I added some eucalyptus to the top of the wreath.
I made a simple pink bow and attached it to the top of the wreath.
I tied a strip of fabric to the cup hook where it met the pine cone.
I positioned the pine cone where I wanted it to be on the wreath......
Then I just pulled the fabric strips thru and tied them to the wreath.
Here's how the back of the wreath looked when I finished tying the pink pine cones to it.
I really like the pink pine cones......maybe H would like to dip some in blue paint!
While H was dipping pine cones, our little Kyleigh was working on the mounds of leaves we have around the yard.
When I took her picture, she asked me why I wasn't in the house working on my own project! Better get back to work before her and Papa gang up on me....lol!
Can't wait to show you how my wreath looks on the family room mantel!
