Frosted Pinecones Tutorial

Frosted Pinecones Tutorial by Press Print Party

I’ve seen frosted pinecones all over the stores and thought it would be silly to buy a pinecone that I can pick up pretty much anywhere there are pines. And it turns out frosting them is a breeze. So, on my last trip to the mountains I picked up a crate full and got to work.

In this tutorial I will show you, not only how to frost the pinecones, but also a pretty and simple way to hang them. Bonus! They smell wonderful.

You will need:

* Epsom Salt
* White glue
* Glitter (optional)
* 3 strips of burlap (about 3 inches wide), different lengths
* Glue gun
