DIY Frosted Pine Cones
03 Monday Dec 2012
In the spirit of the season I’m going to be sharing quite a few Easy Holiday Projects, today I’m sharing a DIY Frosted Pine Cone tutorial that is very similar to the DIY Glittered Apple Tutorial that I shared a few months ago. This is such an easy and fun project that can make a big impact when it comes to decorating for the holidays! So grab a few Pine Cones and two of my all time favorite products Epsom Salt and Mod Podge (If you don’t have any on hand you can get a box of Epsom Salt at the Dollar Tree and Mod Podge at Walmart or any of your local craft stores).
Alright, now lets get started!!
Here is what you will need:
- Pine Cone
- Epsom Salt
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
Step 1: Apply Mod Podge to the End of the Pine Cone Tips
I thought it was easiest to Mod Podge one row at a time
Step 2: Sprinkle Epsom Salt on top of the Pine Cone (make sure you sprinkle enough to cover the entire area that you applied Mod Podge to)
Step 3: Before moving on to the next row turn your pine cone upside down and shake off any extra Epsom Salt.
Continue the steps above for each row on the Pine Cone, as a side note, Pine cones have tiny little thorns so be careful not to prick your fingers!
I Frosted about 10 Pine Cones with Epsom Salt and put them in a decorative bowl with Silver Glittered Ornaments
