For a gorgeous centerpiece, add a touch of razzle-dazzle to nature's bounty.

Here's how: Choose pinecones in a variety of shapes and sizes. Spray-paint them silver, copper, or blue. Apply spray-mount glue in sections from top to bottom, rotating the cone as you go—if you cover the entire pinecone with glue, it will dry before you can apply glitter. Working over a large piece of kraft paper or newspaper, sprinkle matching glitter over the pinecone with a spoon. Turn pinecone upside down and repeat on the underside to coat.

Tip: For the best results, match the glitter color to the paint—for example, silver glitter with silver paint.
