DIY :: Gold Glitter Pinecones



I have been seeing gold pinecones all over Pinterest and knew I needed them! I went this weekend to pick me up some however they were all so expensive. So I thought well heck I can make them myself! And that I did. I already had my gold Krylon spray paint, Modge Podge and gold glitter so all I needed was a bag of pine cones {as I live in the city and couldn't tell you where the nearest pine tree is} {plus they are scented so I can use the extras to make my apt smell yummy} and I was set. I got this bag at JoAnn's for $5.99.


I laid down some cardboard to not paint the grass gold, and went to town at spraying the pine cones. I only did one coat as I was happy with the look and knew I was going to be adding some glitter but you could apply another coat or two if you were going to stop here.


Then with a paintbrush, I dipped it in the Modge Podge and painted the ends of the pine cones with the glue. Once I had all the ends painted up I sprinkled on the glitter and TA DAAAAAA!! 


Gold glitter pine cones!
