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 easy 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.
Frosted Pinecones Materials
- Epsom Salt
- White glue
- Glitter (optional)
- Strips of burlap (about 3 inches wide), different lengths
- Glue gun
Pour some Epsom salt and glitter into a bowl and mix.
Squeeze glue onto the tips of your pinecones and immediately roll in in the Epsom salt mix.
Let dry overnight…
… then apply a generous amount to glue to the bottom of each pinecone with a glue gun to glue the burlap strips.
Hang the strips at different lengths to create visual interest. It looks great outdoors…
… or indoors. And the scent of the Epsom salt is perfect for a bathroom.
I’ve used this pretty pinecones in my NOEL wreaths and they are so easy to make that I make new ones each year to make the guest bathroom pleasantly scented.
