The end of October is upon us and the holiday season is right around the corner. I love this time of year so much and I especially love decorating my home for each season/holiday. These Metallic Painted Pinecones are so simple and beautiful and they make a great addition to any fall/winter home decor. If you’re looking to take things up a notch, or just add in some natural elements to your home decor than these might be just what you need.
Here are the supplies to make your own:
- Pinecones (I bought a huge bag of large ones at the grocery store which was cheaper than the craft store!)
- Metallic Paint (I used light gold)
- Sponge brush
Gently dip your brush in the paint and shake off excess. Lightly paint exterior tips of pinecones. Set aside to dry and thats it!
Beautiful painted pinecones that can be used in so many ways. I made a pinecone garland, pinecone ornaments, and a pinecone wreath using these and I love the look. They add a touch of rustic to my home decor without being too country. These might be my favorite decorations right now, you’ll definitely be seeing a lot of these. 🙂
Do you decorate with pinecones? What is your favorite way to use them?

Thanks so much Kyla!
Such pinecones will definetly make Christmas mood in the house!
They do make it Christmas-y for sure!
We have four HUGE pine trees in our yard that keep us in the cones. I’m definitely going to try this. They’re so pretty, but simple, too. Love it.
That will be perfect! Have fun!

I love painted pinecones! Metallic are my favorite! I just painted some pinecones with my daughters that we picked up on our way home after a visit to the park (my bribe to get them to leave was that we would decorate them later). Of course, we opted for a huge mess and involved glitter in the process. Oh glitter.
These are so pretty, Marie! Pinned to share and scheduled a FB post too! 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend!
These pine-cones are adorable! Love! Thanks for linking up with us at Your Designs This Time!

Those pinecones are so beautiful!
I love your photographs! they’re amazing.
Thanks so much Sarah!
When I was much younger, there was a house a few houses down from me that had a LARGE tree that dropped TONS of pine cones. My grandma used to have me go down there to pick up pine cones for her and then she would paint them in metallic gold and then hang them from ribbon in a bunch from her door and give them away as gifts too.
Great post! Brings back good memories.
Awe, thats such an awesome memory! Glad I could bring back some nostalgia!
Love this project! Simple, but with a big impact. Thanks for linking up to Show Me Saturday. I’m featuring you on tomorrow’s link up. Have a great weekend!
