And to think, this holiday mantel fantel with trees would be just so blah without a painted pine cone garland.
Just some trees and faux snow.
But with a garland of painted pine cones? Now this holiday mantel fantel with trees truly comes to life!
Oh, and I’m painting even more pines cones as you read this. Because I need painted pine cones EVERYWHERE in my holiday decor this year! And here’s how you can make your own …
How To Make A Painted Pine Cone Garland
Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint in Linen White (you can also just use white craft paint)

Start with your pine cones. I picked up a bag of scented ones at my local grocery store. (You can also buy them online at the link above.)
Using a disposable foam brush, apply paint to the tips.
Cut a length of jute twine (tip: cut a piece at least twice as long as the final length you need). Using your jute twine, tie a knot around center of the first pine cone.
Keep adding more pine cones, tying a knot around the center of each. Mine are spaced about 3 1/2″ to 4″ apart.
I used these Command Light Clip hooks to hang up the garland on my holiday mantel fantel with trees.
