Glittery Christmas Pinecone Ornaments

  • Assorted pinecones
  • Americana acrylic paint by DecoArt in the suggested colors: Indian Turquoise (top photo), Winter Blue (in the three step-by-step pictures), Country Red, Avocado Dip, and Hauser Light Green
  • American Painter #5 round (series 4000)
  • Glitter, of course, in assorted colors
  • Black, 26-gauge craft wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Chain-nose pliers


  1. Paint the tips of the pinecone with paint as shown above. Work quickly because you want the paint to remain wet.

  2. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle lots of glitter on the pinecone. Let dry completely.

  3. Use 9 inches of wire, and bend it in half to form a loop. Take the loose ends, and gently twist a few times to secure the loop. Now wrap the loose ends around the pinecone's stem. Push down any loose ends with your chain-nose pliers.

Another way to do this that is LESS MESSY (but more expensive!) is to use Extreme Glitter Paint by Plaid. I have recently fell in love with the stuff and now have four hues (gold is my favorite, not really happy with the results of the black though)! For extra color punch, paint the pinecones first and then go over it with the glitter paint. I did see some less expensive "posterboard" type glitter paint at Micheals, but haven't tried it yet. It says "paper and most porous surfaces" so I think it would work well on the pinecones. Happy Crafting!
