How to Make Winter Pine Cones

Pine cones are a common items to have as home decor during the holidays and even a common item to find in your front yard. Whether you re-purpose your holiday decor or pick up a few off your porch you can create a beautiful winter pine cones that will decorate your home all winter long.

Things you need:

  • Pine cones (5)
  • White acrylic paint
  • Surebonder detail glue gun
  • Surebonder Glitter Stix (we use silver)
  • Paint brush
  • Wax paper

Before we get started, make sure you have on clothes that you mind getting paint on. Acrylic paint can be difficult or impossible to get out of clothes.

 The first step is to paint your pine   cones white. Now when you paint   them white, do not paint the entire   cones you want to leave the middle   of the cones brown. Just paint the   outside and some of the inner   pieces. This will help create a more   of a realistic look of snow falling on   the cone.

                                                                                                                                           

The next step will take your pine cones to the next level. At the end of each painted pine cone seed, apply small amounts of glitter glue. Apply the glitter glue in small sections, allowing each section to cool. This allows us to grab the recently decorated area  and move to the next one.   

The amazing thing about our Surebonder Glitter Stix is that unlike using regular hot glue and glitter, our Glitter Stix will not leave glitter everywhere. You can also pick them up without removing a lot of glitter which will help your project sparkle for years to come!



Repeat this process for each pine cone until all six are completed.

When you have five beautiful Winter Pine Cones completed just place them around your home or place around candles on a dish to create a winter centerpiece.
