How cute are these ombre pinecones?! These are perfect to decorate your house or apartment for fall to give it a cozy feel. This DIY tutorial comes from the creative people at Whimzeecal.


The only things you need for this tutorial are pinecones (just go look outside) and paints in a few shades of the same color. You can find paint for the pinecones at a craft store.

Bake the pinecones

Do not skip this step! It is incredibly important that you bake the pinecones in your oven for about 10 minutes to bake all of the bugs out of the pinecones. This will also help dry out any sap that is left on the pinecones.

Paint the pinecones

Paint the tips of the pinecones, starting with the darkest color on the bottom. Change to lighter colors about 1/3 of the way up the pinecone. Then, change to the lightest color for the top 1/3 of the pinecone.

Now you have cute, colorful pinecones to decorate your apartment or home for fall!
