We first discovered this idea when we spied it on Vanessa Valencia’s blog, A Fanciful Twist.

She was tossing a pine cone around in her hand when she looked at it upside down. It was then that she had the ‘aha’ moment. She immediately saw the zinnia flower hiding out in the pine cone.

We adore the colors that she painted hers. She also recommends doing an undercoat of white paint to really achieve a vibrant result. You can see all the details on her blog.
