DiY Pine Cone Garland

Hi everyone! It’s Stephanie from stephlovesben back with a cute autumn DiY! I just love autumn, but since I live in Florida, I kind of have to bring autumn to myself (although it was only in the lower eighties this weekend). One way I decided to do this was to create a pine cone garland for my mantle. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Here’s what you will need: pine cones, spray paint in colors of your choice, and twine or some other string.

Here’s what to do:
1. Spray paint the pine cones in the colors you chose. I did mine in yellow and white and then left some natural (you could also do Christmas colors for a Christmas garland). You will need to do several layers of paint depending on the coverage you want. I did about 5 coats.

2. After your pine cones are completely dry, just tie them onto your twine and you are done! You have a cute and easy autumn garland!

  3. I've seen other pine cone garlands, but none of them were painted. I love the added color! Very nice.

  4. I can't wait to make one of these for my porch. I love it! I would also LOVE to link to your tute if you didn't mind!

  5. This is so super cute! I found it on pinterest and I'm linking to it in a "Simple Fall Decor" post going out tomorrow.

  6. Love this! How did you tie the pinecones to the twine? Did you use a smaller string to tie them to one line or did you tie them directly on the one piece of twine?

  7. I think I will do red & silver for Christmas! How did you tie them?

  8. you can tie the twine gently around one of the spikes of the pinecone, or use a dot of hot glue.
