DIY Snow Covered Pinecones

Hello Design Dazzle friends!  I am Brooke from Start at Home Decor and I am so excited to be sharing one of my favorite Christmas crafts today.  I am always looking for a fun craft to do with my kids that we will actually use.  These DIY snow covered pinecones are perfect for that.  I did this craft with my 5 year old and 2 year old and surprisingly enough both of their pinecones turned out just as good as mine!


If you like to do crafts chances are you have all the supplies for this at home.

You will need:

  • Kosher Salt – for snow
  • Hammer/meat tenderizer
  • Elmers Glue
  • Paint brush
  • Pinecones
  • Bowl


First dump your kosher salt into a bowl and use your meat tenderizer to break up the salts.

After you have one side of your pinecone painted lay it in a bowl and sprinkle your salt over the top.  Continue doing this until you have covered your entire pinecone.

As I mentioned earlier I am Brooke from Start at Home Decor where I have lots of fun home decorating, repurposing and furniture painting tutorials.  My husband and I are currently finishing 2 bedrooms for our daughters for Christmas, we are hoping to keep it a secret so they can wake up in their new rooms on Christmas morning!  We would love for you to follow along with us on our blog here.
