2. PAINT

Pick one color for each pinecone. For the ombre effect, start with the darkest color and paint the base of the pinecone. As you paint higher, add white into your color palette and mix it in as you go up.

3. PLATE

Arrange the dried pine cones on a platter to decorate your tablescape.

Bonus tip: You can turn your ombre pine cones into an ornament and use them as take-home gifts for guests.
