Daisies and Zinnias

my pine cone flowers

I've been seeing so many creative flowers on Pinterest made out of pine cones. I finally decided to give it a try.  I picked some cones out of Mac's yard, got some super cheap paint from Hancock's going-out-of-business sale, and went for it.

First I baked them at 250 for 30 minutes to assure that I wasn't bringing in any bugs.  Then I used floral sheers to cut them in half.  That was the most time consuming part.

I brushed the paint on due to space issues.  Dunking or spraypainting would be great.

Right side up makes a daisy.  Upside down makes a zinnia.

found these cute little colanders at World Market for $1.99

I made a few extra which may become fridge magnets.
