Diy Idea to Dress up Pine Cones with an Ombre Effect

Who never stumbled upon pine cones and collected then not knowing what to do ? Here is a modern DIY idea to add a pop of color to any boring room.

Depending on the size of the pinecone you can either use three shades of paint for a small to medium size pinecone or four different shades for a large size pinecone. This will allow you to clearly see the ombre effect.


How to do it :

  1. Take your toothbrush and clean off any dirt or bugs (recommend doing this step outdoor).
  2. Take your paint brush and apply the first shade on to 1/4 of the pinecone (recommend starting with the darkest shade at the bottom of the pinecone and working your way up).
  3. Continue painting the next shade to the next 1/4 of the pinecone.
  4. Repeat step 3 with the rest of the shades until you reach the top.
