A candle arrangement with fall leaves and painted pinecone zinnias.If you have a lot of small pine cones in your yard to decorate with, you can take them up a notch by painting the backs of them to create 'zinnias'. I incorporated them into my fall floral decor this year and really like their texture and color.


Total Time: 2 Hours


  • pinecones
  • paint
  • floral wire


  1. Basically all you do is paint the backs of the pine cones w/acrylic craft paint.
  2. A tray with paint and a brush next to pine cones.
    Pine cones in plastic medicine cups, painted red or yellow.
    A collection of painted pinecone zinnias.
  3. Let them dry then carefully attach floral wire to them.
  4. Pine Cone 'Zinnias' - stem end of pinecones painted in fall colors
    Adding stems to the pinecones to resemble zinnias.
  5. Add the pine cones to your floral arrangements.
  6. Pine Cone 'Zinnias' - cone "zinnias" added to fall floral display
