Painted Pinecone Flower Arrangement Tutorial

I have a thing for pinecones. I don’t know what it is, I just find them to be incredibly charming. I’m also not a very colorful person and prefer neutral colors. If you saw my home you’d know what I mean– lots of beige and then more beige.

I’ve been wanting to make these pinecone flowers for a while now, but couldn’t determine in my head how I was going to make the stems. I knew I was going to use skewers, but then how do I attach them to the pinecones? I would need a miracle glue or something.

Then it hit me.

A drill! If I could just drill a shallow hole in the bottom of each pine cone, then I’m certain that a little hot glue would hold the skewer stems in place.

I made these pinecone flowers for Christmas, but you could decorate them for just about any occasion.

DIY Pinecone Flower Centerpiece Idea

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

  • pinecones
  • long wooden skewers (mine were 12 inches)
  • hot glue
  • a 3/16 inch drill bit
  • paint supplies (optional)
  • a vase (about 6 inches tall)
  • floral foam

1. Start off by drilling a shallow hole in the bottom of each pinecone. You just need it deep enough to secure the wooden skewer with hot glue.

2. Paint the pinecones in the colors of your choice. I chose to paint only the tips of my pinecones because I think it looks more rustic and natural (I’m also lazy).

I left a few of them unpainted as well.

3. Once the paint has dried, place a generous amount of hot glue into the pre-drilled holes and then immediately place the flat side of your skewers inside. I held each skewer in place for about 20 seconds before moving on to the next to ensure that it dried in place.

4. If you plan on arranging these in a vase, I recommend placing a piece of floral foam onto the bottom of your vase to keep your pinecone flowers obedient.

5. Start by placing a full length pinecone stem directly into the middle of the foam, and then trim the rest of the skewers as needed to create a natural looking arrangement. I also added in some faux white berry filler once I was finished. I think it makes a big difference!
