DiY your Christmas: Frosted Pine Cones

O ne of the perks of living in my city is that we don't really run out of good pine cones for Christmas. Heck we just take a short walk and we already get to bring home a bagful of this wonderful goodies! There's something about pine cones that make Christmas look more, well Christmas-ey. And since I have made up my mind to go all white Christmas this year, I've decided to frost my pinecone loot.

Here are the super easy, no-brainer steps.
*Gather up pinecones of different sizes and shapes. I like mine with scales already a bit open. 
*Lightly brush the scales with white non-toxic craft acrylic paint (need not make the color all solid white)
*Let dry and decorate to your hearts content

    I'm quite fortunate to have two pine trees in between our front steps. It makes me miss them a little less.
