This pine cone tutorial is actually two tutorials in one.  It’s about how to make glitter pine cone ornaments, but it is also about how to paint pine cone ornaments in the ombre style.

Both projects are very easy, and I think the kids would enjoy painting the pine cones.

These ornaments would make a unique addition to your table centerpiece, or they could be in a bowl at your front entrance.  You could also use them to adorn larger gifts or line them up on your mantel.

I particularly love the glittered pine cones.  I love the sparkly pine cones look, and these pine cones will catch the light.

Have a look and see if you like it.
