I live under pine trees! I might as well do something with them... they are free except for the dents in the truck and a hole in my roof!
Gilded Pinecones How-To 1. In a ventilated area, line a surface with plastic and then paper. Secure a rod across an open cardboard box. 2. Insert a screw eye into base of each pinecone. Attach a 10-inch-long wire to each screw eye. 3. Stir gold paint. Wearing gloves, dip pinecones to coat; hang on rod in box. Let dry (at least 1 day). 4. Remove wire; thread with ribbon.
