My first attempt at recreating something from Pintrest- PIP

I've become somewhat addicted (suprise, surprise) to the wonderful world of Pintrest.   I had found an inspiration pic of spray painted pinecones, even though I am not crafty in the least I thought it was something I could manage....and we have pine trees surrounding our new house.  So I got 3 cans of spray paint and 30 minutes later I have some custom decor.  Wink  So maybe I'm not a lost cause after all.

  • Those turned out really cute

    Totally off topic, but I love that you keep the kitten pictures of Millie and Izzy as your sig. Izzy in the window just cracks me up every time!

  • They came out great!  I have a different painted pinecone picture pinned.  Pinterest is not working for me right now, but I think it's this one:

  • That's the one I have pinned as well. I was originally planning to use a glass bowl, but I didn't like the way the one I had looked, so I ended up digging the shallow basket out of a cabinet.

    I like yours better.  I think the basket works both with your colors and as another organic element.   It is beautiful and fun, without looking contrived or like you are trying too hard.

    Oh, duh, I thought the first was your inspiration pic and the second pic was your imitation.  I was wondering how you got it so exact!  Embarrassed

  • That turned out really great, I love the colors.

    I have the same picture pinned, I was thinking of doing it around Christmas time (or whenever our pinetree drops pinecones, I feel dumb for not being able to remember, lol).

  • Thanks for the positive feedback...and I love that someone thought mine could have been the inspiration pic.  Go me!  Party!!!  I'm really pleased with it myself, b/c I really am not crafty in the least.  I see the projects some people take and just sit back in awe and envy.

    (Also glad to Izzy can still bring a laugh.  I've forgotten how to update my siggy so even though she's 2 1/2 she'll always be a kitten on the nest.  Besides it's one of my all time favorite pics, so I'd have a hard time picking  a new one anyways)
