Pinecones are ideal for Christmas and winter décor, you may paint them winter-like and decorate your house. You will need pinecones, white craft paint, a small paint brush, white/translucent glitter, a box or plastic tub. Spray polyurethane and crudely paint the edges of the cone in a localized area. Quickly take your glitter and shake over the wet paint. Turn the cone over and shake the excess. Repeat with paint and glitter until you finish one side. Allow to dry and begin working on another pinecone. Daub some paint inside of the concave portion of the top if it is shaped that way. If the top is fairly flat, just put a bit more paint that you did along the sides. Decorate your mantel and enjoy!
