Here’s how to make your own pine cone centerpiece. It’s so easy.
1. Spread Pine cones out
Spread pine cones out on a surface you can toss. I used a large box to prevent the spray paint from spreading.
2. Spray the pine cones
Spray one side, and then rotate the pine cones. Keep painting the pine cones until they are completely covered. Let dry, about 5 minutes. I used a darker silver, but a bright silver would look great as well.
3. Paint berries with a glue mixture
Mix 1 part school glue, with one part water. Use a paintbrush to paint berries with glue mixture. While wet, gently press berries in Epsom salt. I used a plastic bag to hold the Epsom salt because I found it easier to get in space between berries. Let dry, about 10 minutes.
4. Pour Epsom salt around the vase
Place the cylinder vase in the center of the salad bowl. Pour Epsom salt around the vase to prevent it from sliding.
5. Arrange pine cones and berries in the vase
Arrange pine cones and berries in the vase.
Stand back and admire how pretty it looks, especially when the light hits it.
Just look at how pretty those pine cones are. With care, they can be stored after the holidays to be used year after year. They won’t smell the same, but they will still look pretty.
