DIY PAINTED PINE CONES

November 30, 2015
DIY PAINTED PINE CONES

Here at LENZO, we love getting our creative on during the festive season - making and baking to add to our grand events. Not only is this a fun way to be money savvy, we think that these little DIY additions help provide a personal touch to your party!

Wanting to stand out from the regular Christmas colours of red, green and gold, we turned to the helpful team at Haymes Paints to select a softer palette to compliment our Nordic Edit.  We added touches of these paints to natural surfaces such as pine cones and tree stumps to create an earthy, winter wonderland - a little bit of magic.

This is a super easy way to make your Christmas table just that little bit special.  No matter what your theme, you can choose a palette (and your surface) that suits your decor and style.

Happy crafting.

Love LENZO x

METHOD

STEP ONE: Choose your perfect palette - we were lucky enough to be helped by the friendly staff at Haymes, who helped us select our Scandanavian-esque paints.

STEP TWO: Start painting!! Dip your brush in and paint from base up, just covering the tips of the cones.

LENZO Tip: Be generous with the amount of paint you apply to the brush, it will flow on easily and you'll get a better finish.

STEP THREE: Before they dry, sprinkle them with glitter - we used silver to go with our Christmas theme.
