Pinecone-Petal Container for Fall Decorating

From early fall through Thanksgiving, this pinecone-petal container boasts nature's bounty.

What You'll Need:

  • Newspapers
  • Round tin
  • Spray paint in neutral tone
  • Pinecones (or purchase pinecone petals from a hobby store)
  • Sharp scissors
  • Plastic knife
  • Strong adhesive, such as E6000
  • Natural-color braid trim
  • Light-color spray stain (optional)
  • Gourds

How to Make It:

  1. In a well-ventilated work area, cover work surface with newspapers. Spray inside of tin with a light coat of paint; repeat with a second coat if needed. Let dry.
  2. Carefully pull each petal from the pinecones, or use purchased pinecone petals.
  3. Use sharp scissors to clip the narrow knobby end from each petal where it attaches to the cone.
  4. Use a plastic knife to evenly spread a layer of adhesive on the lower portion of the tin, working in 3-inch-tall sections around the tin.
  5. Referring to the photo, adhere petals in rows on the tin, starting at the bottom. For each new row, overlap the petals on the previous row. Leave space around the rim for braid trim. Let adhesive dry.
  6. Cut two strips of braid to fit around the rim of the tin. Adhere one strip on the outer edge and one on the inner edge. Let adhesive dry. If desired, in a well-ventilated area, spray decorated tin with stain; let dry.
  7. Fill the tin with gourds.
