Easy Snow Drenched Pinecones

Snow Covered Pinecones and Greenery 
This season I've seen quite a few pine cones covered in "snow" in decorations. I don't know if people are making their own or buying them that way but I thought I'd try making my own with a large basket of pine cones I have.

Really Really easy. And they turned out great. This one is easy enough to let the kids help out.

Supplies Needed:

  • Pine cones
  • White Paint
  • Brush
  • Wax Paper

Lay out the wax paper on your working surface. Use a sponge brush. Dip it lightly in paint and beginning at the top of the pine cone drag your brush down hitting the edges of the cone. Repeat around the entire pine cone until you have the desired effect.

Make it as light or heavy as you wish by adding coats or paint.

Sit on wax paper to dry. Add glitter to edges if you wish.

You are done. Pine cones that look like they have been snowed on.


  • Tree ornaments or stuck in between branches.
  • Add to a green wreath.
  • Glue them together to make a pine cone wreath.
  • Put in a bowl, basket, or large glass vase and use as a centerpiece or accent on a mantel.
  • Add to almost any decoration you wish-see above stocking.
