Step 1: Roll your pine cones in glue

Squeeze some PVA glue onto a paper plate and roll your pine cones into the glue.

We chose to just cover the bottom half of our pine cones but you might like to cover the whole thing.

Step 2: Add some snow

Pour out some artificial snowflakes onto another paper plate.

You can buy these cheaply online or at craft stores.

Roll your pine cone into the snow to make sure every glued area is covered.

Once your pine cones are dry tap or shake to remove any excess snow.

Step 3: Add some shimmer with glitter

If you don’t have artificial snow then you can roll your glue covered cones in glitter instead.

This makes them sparkle and shine and is just as effective.
