Frosted Pine cones – Decor and Dine

Frosted Pine cones

I have been using blue, silver and white as my Christmas colours for the past few years. Trying to save money where I can, as we all know that Christmas decorations can be very expensive, I have been embellishing many regular items to go with my decor.

Pinecones are one of the easiest things to use for the Holiday season and if you are lucky enough to be able to collect them…they are free!

DIY Frosted Pinecones

I added small pinecones to a tray on my coffee table but first I added sparkle to them with some white paint and Epsom salt.

DIY Frosted Pinecones

Three easy steps:

1. Brush pinecones lightly with white paint (any white paint) and let dry

2. Brush the tips of the pinecones with white craft glue

3. Dip the pinecones in Epsom salt

You know I love easy to do projects and this one is EASY!! If you use scented Epsom salts they will also smell wonderful.

    That sounds lovely Candy!! I am in the process of finishing our tree this year and I am still doing the silver and aqua. You can use the glitter instead of the Epsom salt.I made some red ones with glitter.

    Your pine cone, candles, and bauble tray is lovely. I feel myself slipping into a blue Christmas after seeing this lovely tray. I already have the pine cones, no Epsom salts, but I do have glitter (for making putz houses) and I have a slew of silver and aqua ornaments and blue and aqua pine cones that I could use to put together a nice tray like yours.

    That’s a great idea with the pinecones. I have a bunch I collected at my son’s home in PA when we visited. I should do this to them! I really like the big tray with the glass candleholders and the blue ornaments mixed with the pinecones- it’s a great statement piece!

    Thanks Joyce. The table was actually a trash rescue. A friend found it and gave it to me and I painted it with chalk paint. I have a post on the before and after. The tray I purchased at Homesense.

    ” I LOVE THAT!!! The blue is gorgeous for Christmas!! Have you thought of a blue spruce swag on the fireplace with a little Epsom salt sparkle? – ( I just thought of that.) :0) -I would love to know where you found that beautiful table & what seems to be matching tray. You should go into business decorating others homes for Christmas.
