Wooden Glittered Pinecones


I'm always pulling over and picking up 
furniture off the side of the road.

This time however, it wasn't to re-do the chairs.

It was for these awesome finials on top of the chairs.

Can you see what I saw?

Yep...

Pinecones!

Snowy, glittery pinecones.

I started out by cutting the finials off the chairs then attached a screw eye to the top of each one.

I gave the finials a coat of oil rubbed bronze paint.

I could have left them like this, they were so cute!

But when the finials were dry I gave them a squirt of spray snow. 

When the snow dried I dabbed on Modge Podge then
added clear glitter.

These little lovelies are going to look great on 
my Christmas tree.

And...
See what happened to the rest of the chair! {HERE}
