DIY & Crafts, Holiday Decorating & Crafts

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!


If you like to do crafts chances are you have all the supplies for this at home.

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.
