Succulent Pinecone Craft Supplies
- Pinecones of various shapes and sizes. You’ll be using bottoms and tops.
- Pruning shears or something to cut your pine cones with. They need a longer tip to get inside.
- Paint, acrylic or spray paint (after testing both, spray paint is much easier)
- Moss if desired for containers
APPLE BARREL ACYRLIC
RUST-OLEUM SPRAY PAINT
Gather your supplies.
Cut the top and or bottoms off your pinecones.
This may require pulling out some of the pine cone scales to be able to reach in to the core. You can use both tops and bottoms of a pine cone as both look appropriate.
Once you have your pieces, paint as desired either by hand or spray painting.
As you can see, the bottoms and tops both resemble succulents.
Fill your container with moss or stones if desired.
You can now arrange your “succulents” inside.
