I am currently working on decorating my studio apartment and right now I am focusing on creating decorations for the wall around my desk/office area. Since I am on a budget, I am trying to use things I can find outside or laying around the house. For this particular project, I created a wall hanging out of pinecones and paint.
You will need:
1. Perfect Pinecones (however many you want for your wall hanging – I used 4)
2. Indoor paint and paintbrush (I had leftover samples from Sherwin-Williams in cream and light green).
3. String or yarn to tie them together and scissors.
First, I found my leftover paint samples. I had some tan colors, but decided to go with cream and light green. I was also able to find some pinecones that were good shapes and not crushed.
Next, I just rolled the pinecones around in my chosen paint colors.
I used a paintbrush to get the paint more into the crevices, but didn’t completely cover them with paint, although that may be interesting to try out too. Then, I let them dry.
Once they were dry, I tied them together with yarn in a layout that I was happy with and pinned them to the wall. These would make really cute Christmas decorations or ornaments.
Have a nice day!
