I am so excited to be sharing one of my favorite winter crafts today.  I am always looking for a fun craft to do with my kids that we will actually use.  These DIY snow covered pinecones are perfect for that.  I did this craft with my 5 year old and 2 year old and surprisingly enough both of their pinecones turned out just as good as mine!

You will need:

  • Kosher Salt – for snow
  • Hammer/meat tenderizer
  • Elmers Glue
  • Paint brush
  • Pinecones
  • Bowl

First dump your kosher salt into a bowl and use your meat tenderizer to break up the salts.

After you have one side of your pinecone painted lay it in a bowl and sprinkle your salt over the top.  Continue doing this until you have covered your entire pinecone.
