Ombre Pinecone


Material

- Pinecones
- An old toothbrush
- Angled paint brush
- Acrylic paint in three or four different shade of the same color

Instructions

1.Use the old toothbrush to clean off any dirt or bugs in the pinecones. I recommended you to do this outdoor.
2.Take your paint brush and apply the first shade on to ¼ of the pinecone. I recommended you starting with the darkest shade at the bottom of the pinecone. This will make your ombre pinecones look more beautiful. Work you way up.
3.Continue painting the next shade to the next ¼ of the pinecone.
4.Repeat the step 3 with the rest of the shades until you reach the top.
5.Continue other pinecone with the same steps. And you will have a fabulous ombre pinecones !!

Tips

If the pinecones aren’t fully open and there’s no sunshine, you can try to put them in the oven at a moderately low temp and they should bloom as they fully dry. Make sure you put pinecones on aluminium foil before you put them in oven. This method is much faster and it also kills the bugs inside them.

ONCE AGAIN HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND HAPPY HOLIDAY !!!
