Day 29 of Make Madness – Painted Pine Cones


0138200ae13671b196e647892016cc40eb88f20c26There are a couple of houses in our neighborhood that have trees that drop pine cones.  Some of the cones are tiny and adorable, others are medium-sized and then there is oneSpray-painted-pinecones tree where the pine cones look like roses.  Every day when I’m walking the dogs, I’m always on the look out for pine cones.  I don’t collect one every day, but I’ve done enough collecting to fill this jar on the left.

I saw this pin (to the right) on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to paint some of the pine cones to add some interest to our decor.

Come back tonight to see how I did.

Until this evening,
