I would like directions to spray pine cones to look like glass.I used looking glass paint and they just looked gray.Could you help me please
If you tried the Krylon looking glass spray paint in silver and it looked gray it’s probably due to the dark color of the pine cone. The tutorial shows clear glass so it does result in the metallic effect. Unfortunately I can’t really tell you more than that. You could try just a silver spray paint which will make the pine cones more silver than gray? Good luck 🙂

I think my favorite decoration here is the retro Santa sign. There’s just something so satisfying and appealing to that kind of retro style. I’ll have to borrow some of these ideas for next Christmas. Thanks for sharing!
