This image is of an interior door painted in Unplugged. 
It is decorated with painted pinecones hanging on the door with a door hanger. 
To the right of the door is a green console with keys peaking through and a branch of pine needles. 
Also a large vase on the bottom shelf of the console.

Winter is coming and you know what that means! Oh yeah… pinecones galore!!!  Set yourself on a collection adventure for these seasonal icons and create this colorful, holiday, project perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas alike. 
To complete this project you will need the following:
Paint brushes
Eye hooks
Ribbon
Faux pine branches
Door wreath hanger
Glue gun or glue
Paint: we used: Pyramid Gold PPU6-04, Mega Blue P520-6, Green Energy PPU10-03, Classic Berry  PPU1-19 and Oriental Eggplant PPU17-02.
Step 1: Paint pinecone tips
For this look, we mostly painted the tips of the pinecones.  However, for greater color presence, you can paint the entire pinecone.

This image shows a pinecone being painted with a small paintbrush.

Step 2: Insert eye hooks
Allow the pinecone to dry then insert eye hook into the bottom by twisting it in.

After pinecone is finished drying then twist in eye hook so the ribbon can hang from it.

Step 3: Attach decorative ribbon
Cut various lengths of decorative ribbon to hang you pinecones with.  Tie one end of your ribbon to the eye hook.
