Pinecones remind me of Fall. This time of year, it’s usually not hard to find them laying around on the ground. My daughter and I were looking at the pinecones we had collected and thought they had the same shape as candy corns. We decided, we would paint a few to look like candy corns. They will make great decorations that can be used throughout the entire Fall season. My family is a big fan of candy corns, I have to hide them from the girls or they disappear from the candy dish pretty quickly.
What you need:
- Yellow Spray Paint
- White Spray Paint
- Orange Spray Paint
First, we spray painted the entire pinecone white. I found that spraying the whole pinecone white first made the yellow and orange look brighter. We used Krylon Dual Paint + Primer, it worked really well.
Then, we sprayed the orange in the middle of the pinecone. It doesn’t have to be perfect, if you look at candy corns closely you will notice, they all seem to look different and the colors run a little.
Next, we sprayed the bottom of the pinecone yellow.
This was such a quick and easy process that we decided to make a few and use them for decorations.
I placed some in a glass jar for display on the dining room table.
I LOVE the way candy corn pinecones turned out so much, that I’ve decided I want to do a few more. I am now on the hunt for BIG pinecones. They will look great added to my mantel and other places around the house.
