These cute pine cones make a great addition to your Thanksgiving table centerpiece or even on the plates to mark the guest’s seats when combined with a name tag. You can get some pine cones after a walk outside if your neighborhood has them or get some at a local crafts store. After cleaning them off with an old toothbrush, use a paint brush with a colorful acrylic paint on the tips of the pinecone. You can even use different colors and create different effects, like the gradient effect from the photo. The acrylic paint dries quickly, making it a great last-minute decoration idea.
