DIY Centerpieces

Posted by  ·  December 30, 2012  ·  Last Updated: April 30, 2016

Making a DIY Centerpiece is super easy with spray paint and pine cones! So if you need a last minute way to make a glittery decoration to celebrate New Years, grab some paint and pine cones and in less than 30 minutes you will have a fabulous DIY centerpiece! You might also like these DIY wood candle holders.



Lowe’s has everything you need, including the pine cones.

Place pine cones in a box to contain the spray paint and make for easier clean-up.

Give pine cones a coat of metallic spray paint. Once the metallic paint is completely dry give the pine cones a spray of glitter.

Set some glass votive candles amongst the pine cones and you have a quick, easy and beautiful centerpiece!

Lowe’s has all the tools you need to be creative. Check out their Lowe’s Creative Ideas blog and be inspired! You can find Lowe’s Creative Ideas on Facebook and don’t forget to pick up a FREE Subscription to Lowe’s Creative Ideas Magazine. Their magazine is fabulous!

 Or, now available for the iPad, the FREE Lowe’s Creative Ideas App gives you full access to the most recent magazine issues. Get all the exciting project ideas, helpful videos and loads of bonus content wherever you go!

 

Disclosure: Lowe’s gave me a gift card to cover my supplies! All ideas and opinions are my own. Lowe’s truly is my go to place for supplies!

Contest will end Jan 6 at 12am central time.  Winner will be chosen by random.org and will have 3 days to respond via email.

    Oh, what a gorgeous centerpiece! And what a generous giveaway! My only question is ... wouldn't the spray paint make the pine cones even more flammable than they naturally are? Or am I being a worrywart?

    Regardless, the effect is beautiful and I would love to win this giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Thanks for the giveaway!! I've been searching for a bowling pin set I saw someplace on line in a Lowe's article. The Lions Club in Tecumseh, Michigan has the sight mobile at our Appleumpkin festival in October & we have pumpkin bowling. I thought that the bowling pins made from pvc pipe would be grand & hold up to the pumpkins hitting them & survive for years to come. Can you help me by sending me the information?? The gift card sure would be great to win to cover the cost & repaint our bowling "alley" to set the pvc pins up on!!!

    Thanks a million & then some!
