THESE BLEACHED PINECONES ARE PERFECT FOR HOLIDAY STYLING AND NO BLEACH IS REQUIRED!
Hi, sweet #sifamily! Here’s a simple 5-minute holiday styling project that’s perfect for Fall or Christmas Decor — Bleached Pinecones! The best part is NO BLEACH IS REQUIRED so no splash mishaps or smelly fumes.
I’ll also be announcing the 3 winners of last week’s Dixie Belle Birthday Giveaway later in the post, but first…
Here’s what I started with. These pinecones were picked right off the ground. If you’re in an area that doesn’t have pine trees, they often sell bags of pine cones at dollar stores or garden nurseries.

BLEACHED PINECONES IN 5-MINUTES
This process is super simple and takes less than 5-minutes to do minus the dry time.
To create a whitewash, I added equal parts water — about a cup’s worth. It doesn’t really matter the temperature of the water so long as it’s not too warm.
I mixed the paint and water together to create my whitewash.
Here’s the fun part! I dunked each pinecone into the wash to completely submerge it into the whitewash. They tend to want to float so a paint stick was really helpful to get complete coverage. You could get creative though. A half whitewashed and half natural pinecone would look amazing as well!
And that’s it! Here they are drying!
