With Halloween just upon us, Jane suggested I make a bouquet of pine cone flowers in orange, black and white colors. Well obviously I thought it was a great idea, so I quickly gathered up the same supplies I used to make these beautiful pine cone roses along with some other Halloween-themed paint colors and away I went.
DIY Pine Cone Flowers
Neither my sister nor I are big Halloween decorators. But when it’s using materials from nature such as pine cones or a way to upcycle something around the house like this candy tin pumpkin decor idea, or using rocks to create the cutest mini DIY Halloween terrarium, I get pretty excited for the orange and black holiday.
I painted a bouquet of pink pine cone roses back in the spring – they turned out so beautifully and are one of the most popular projects here on the blog.
Now, I’m quite amazed at how much I love the look of these painted pine cones in black, especially with the translucent glitter tips. They instantly become elegant yet moody and mysterious.
