    DIY: Natural Snowy Pine Cones!

    diy pine cones easy natural nontoxic

    A sprinkling of winter magic, anyone?! These fun DIY natural, biodegradable pine cones are the perfect way to add holiday cheer this year! In under 10 minutes, you can create snowy pinecones with just 4 simple ‘ingredients’!



    1. This first step is optional. If you’d like to add a bit of color to your cones simply follow the directions for step 2, but use paint instead of glue. Then, follow step 2 & step 3 to create a snowy effect once the paint has dried. The middle pine cone in my photo is an example of one I painted with a very pale pink.
    2. Coat the outer edges of the pine cones with glue using your sponge or brush. For the look we created, I used a sponge dipped in Mod Podge. Gently brush upward from the bottom of the pine cone. Next, flip the cone right-side up and paint a light coat on the top side of the cone.
    3. Lastly, I created the natural snowy effect with a salty sprinkling! We poured about a cup of salt into a small bowl before we sprinkled the pine cones. You can also gently roll the coated pine cones, but be very gentle when doing so.
    4. Easy, peasy! Now, it’s time to decorate your home for the holidays with your natural, homemade pine cones!!

    Hanna Andersson

    Hanna Andersson does it right – amazing quality, thick, breathable, and organic cotton! Plus, HA has lots of colors and styles to choose from. As our go-to brand for Christmas jammies, I also absolutely adore our matching Minnie Mouse jammies that my daughter and I fashionable sport all year long!

    Burt’s Bees

    Burt’s Bees makes so many cute, affordable options for baby so it’s no wonder they created a line of organic family jammies! While Hanna Andersson jammies are a bit thicker, beloved Burt’s Bees pajamas are sure to keep your ‘fam bam’ cozy this winter! Buy on Amazon here.
