pinecone painting up
Step 1:  Gather up some pinecones from a local park (hoping all the while this isn't illegal!)
Step 2:  Paint on white acrylic paint on some of the pinecones - (the snow).
Step 3:  Paint on Golden Fluid Acrylics - Iridescent Gold Deep (Fine) on some of the pinecones.

Question: R U ???  

The finished product has some of the Gold applied over the white, too.
This year one of my daughters and I created a themed display for our outside lights.  We finally had to fire the DH - I think he actually wanted to be fired from the lighting task given the lighting of the past two years.  We had to rip out a dead tree this summer, so we have a tree we can actually reach.

Will have to figure out how to take photos of the nightime display later this week. The weather folks are predicting snow on Thursday.

Answer:  Rudy

Note to self:  Change the banner.....

I was given a huge bag of tiny pine cones so I think I will play with paint with them and then we came use them in a holiday card project. Blessings, Mary Helen

I put out pine cones every year - last year my daughter "caught" me in a town park, scooping up pine cones!!LOL They were a type I didn't have growing on our property!!
FYI- I posted a hint about the snow "globes" in my comments- thanks for dropping by!!!
