  • 12 Pine cones
  • Acrylic paint in light pink, dark pink, white
  • Paint brush
  • Green wooden skewers
  • Floral tape
  • Drill with small drill bit
  • Clear drying craft glue
  • Extra fine white glitter


  1. Using a small, flat tip paint brush, paint each pine cone in the colour of your choice.

  2. Once dry, drill a small hole about ¼” deep into the bottom of the pine cone using a small size drill bit (the same size as the diameter of the wooden skewer).

  3. Wrap the wooden skewer with green floral tape starting at one end and finishing at the other.

  4. Insert one end of the wrapped skewer into the drilled pine cone. Add glue if necessary to hold together.
  5. Glue some fine translucent glitter to the painted pine cones if desired.
