Do that for all of your pine cones and then string them on a line of some kind once they're totally dry.
Now just spray the tops with the white spray paint. You can get the most natural result by spraying all of the pine cones from directly above. You don't want to cover them entirely... just make them look like the snow fell on top of them.
And that's it!
I would have loved to include a picture of them on my tree, but as a rule I don't put mine out before the day after Thanksgiving. But I really love having a bunch of the same ornament to hang all over the tree amidst all the other ornaments because it really helps give it a more cohesive look. And these go with just about any tree decor because they look so natural. Enjoy!
I'll be linking this up to all the fab parties under my Link Party tab, including Met Monday!
