Pine cones painted like zinnia flowers. Layer deeper & lighter shades. Use dimensional paints (glitters, metallics, pearls, shimmers, etc) to add swirls, scrollworks, borders & accent "dewdrops". Add a few crystals. Make ornaments. Or make a Springtime wreath alternated w Easter Eggs painted w dimensional paints wired on top of greenery.
