When I was at the craft store the other day I saw these bags of Pine Cones on sale and they smelled so amazing I couldn’t help myself. I ended up buying 2 bags without even knowing what to do with them. After thinking about it for a few days I remembered that I had some leftover fake snow & lace ribbon from another project lying around. So I decided to transform my regular pine cones into beautiful glittery, snow covered pinecone ornaments!
I love the way they turned out! They add a wonderful vintage feel to the look of my Christmas tree!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
First mix up the snow and the glitter in a small bowl. There is a small amount of glitter in the snow already, but I thought it looked better with more. I poured a lot of glitter in mine – but you can add whatever you think looks the best!
Next, paint your mod podge onto the edges of your pine cone. You want to make sure to get the tops and underneaths so it doesn’t look strange at certain angles.
Lastly, you’ll dip your wet mod podge covered pine cone directly into the snow mixture. Twisting it around to get all the wet mod podge covered. I worked in sections so that the glue didn’t have time to dry before I dipped it into the snow.
To create the ornaments, you’ll need to attach a string to the top for it to hang from. To do this, simply tie the crochet yarn around the top of stump of the pine cone.
Take about a 12-15″ piece of the lace ribbon and tie a bow in the middle of it. Make sure to cut the ends at a cute angle so they have a more finished look.
Attach the ribbon to the top of your pine cone with hot glue.
Then just hang them on your tree! Super easy right!
