How to Assemble

  1. Collect dry open pine cones, or reuse cones you have left over from Christmas decorating.
  2. Using a stiff paint brush, brush out any dirt or insects that may be hidden in the cone’s crevasses.
  3.  Using wire cutters or pruners, snip the cones in half and snip off any remnants of stem on the ends.
  4. Using colourful acrylic or spray paint, paint the cones in floral colours. This usually takes two coats of paint.
  5. At the stem end of the cone, paint a yellow center with a brush and acrylic paint.
  6. Let cones dry completely before arranging in a low dish.
  7. Enjoy your colourful centerpiece!
