Add rustic cheer to your front door with a colorful gathering of painted pinecones.
Collect several large pinecones and dab some of them with acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry.
Use pliers and wire nippers to twist 18-gauge copper wire into a 1-inch loop for each pinecone. Hot-glue the rings to the stem ends of the pinecones, taking care to cover the pointy ends of the wire in glue, as shown.
Tie varying lengths of ribbon to the rings, then tie all the ribbons together in a knot at the top.
