First, start by gathering up all your supplies. For the “snow” for these pinecones you will need salt. I personally used and recommend Epsom salt, because it is inexpensive and the flakes are large like real snow. You can also use regular salt or a coarse kosher salt like this one.

To adhere the “snow” to your pinecones you will also need a clear drying craft glue like Mod Podge or Elmers white glue and a foam brush.

I used the Mod Podge original matte version for mine with a foam brush and it worked perfect!

Last but certainly not least, you will need pinecones. I managed to get all mine for free since we have a lot of pine trees nearby, but if you don’t have any near you, you can purchase an affordable bag of them here. I also foundthis cute pack of pinecones on amazon with berries and branches that would look so cute “snow-covered”. 

To keep this craft as mess-free as possible, I also recommend using a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and a shallow baking dish or bowl. This will help keep all the mess contained in one area.

How to Make Snow Covered Pinecones

To make your snow covered pinecones, start by pouring salt into a shallow baking dish like this one. 

Next, apply glue liberally all over the outside of a pinecone with your foam brush. You want it to look like the photo below in terms of amount.

After that, dip your pinecone and roll it around in the dish or bowl to adhere the salt to the glue. You can also use your fingers to help sprinkle salt on any missing spots. 

Gently place your snow covered pinecone on your baking sheet to dry and repeat for each pinecone. 

 

Tip: Unless you have someone helping you, I recommend doing this process one pinecone at a time because you don’t want the glue to dry before applying the salt.

Once all the pinecones have been covered with snow, allow them to dry for at least 10-15 minutes.

Once dried, take each pinecone and shake off the excess salt on the pan by turning it different directions and upside down. I also found using a clean foam brush and gently tapping the outside edges of the pinecone helped with this step as well.
