Let's make DIY Wall Decoration Using Painted Pine Cones
Paint the board: Use the creme-colored acrylic paint to cover the front of the oval board. This will create a smooth and nice backdrop for all the pine cones once you add them.
Cut the pine cones in half: Cut off the top section from each pine cone. You may need to cut off a few extra smaller bits in order to flatten them out so you can glue them onto the board and so they look more like flowers in the end.
Paint the bottom section yellow: The single bottom pinecone piece will placed in the middle and will represent the center of the flower where all the pollen is found. So take this piece and paint it yellow.
Paint the other sections blue: The smaller top sections of the pine cones represent the petals so go ahead and paint them all light blue. You can also use a different colors if you want to.
Attach the hanger to the back of the board: Just tape the picture hanger, peel off the paper on the back and attach it to the back of the board. Make sure you place it in the right spot so the board stays level when you hang it.
Glue the yellow pine cones in the center: Take the yellow pinecone, put some hot glue onto the unpainted bottom surface and gently press it onto the board at the center.
