Don't have time for Thanksgiving party decoration? Here's a quick and easy way to make your tabletop more festive. Materials: - A pinecone - Acrylic paint in three or four different shade of the same color - Angled paint brush - An old toothbrush Construction: 1. Take your toothbrush and clean off any dirt or bugs (recommend doing this step outdoor). 2. Take your paint brush and apply the first shade on to 1/4 of the pinecone (recommend starting with the darkest shade at the bottom of the pinecone and working your way up). 3. Continue painting the next shade to the next 1/4 of the pinecone. 4. Repeat step 3 with the rest of the shades until you reach the top.
