Make cute snow covered pine cones with things you already have in your kitchen!
These snow pine cones are eco-friendly and non-toxic. A simple, easy and quick Christmas craft for kids.
You’ll just need three things for the snow pine cones: pine cones, obviously, 😉 salt and flour. You can use common table salt or coarse salt. I used table salt for these snow covered pine cones.
DIY Eco-Friendly Snow Pine Cones With Salt & Wheatpaste
- pine cones
Make DIY Wheatpaste
Make DIY wheatpaste with flour and water. Stir together flour and cold water till the wheatpaste has the consistency of thick pancake batter. Let the DIY wheatpaste stand for 10 or 15 minutes.
Dip each pine cone into the DIY wheatpaste.
Roll In Salt
Then roll the pine cones in salt.
And that’s all! Now let the snow covered pine cones dry overnight and you have cute snow frosted pine cones.

Love this idea! I’ve used Epsom salt and modge before, but this looks awesome!
Thank you Jann!
Great idea, especially since glitter is getting all kinds of negative press. I love the snowy look!
So cute and simple! I bet these would look great stuck into a Christmas tree. 🙂

This is such a great idea! I love how you make these look so easy to create. I love that it only takes 4 things to create these beautiful pine cones!

These are gorgeous! And I’m much more comfortable having flour and salt around than the glue and epsom bath salts everyone is using! Thanks for this idea!
Thanks Sara! 🙂 I too didn’t like the glue and salt version. Merry Christmas!

Thank you, Pat! Glad you like it!
Simply and easy wintery DIY project! Too bad we don’t have many pine trees in our yard anymore. We used to have an abundant supply of pinecones. These days if I want ’em I’m gonna have to sneak in someone’s yard or better still just buy them at a craft store. lol Thanks for sharing on INSPIRE ME MONDAY!
Thanks for stopping by, Cathy!

Wonderful DIY! I am going on a hunt to collect some pine cones to add snow. I live in Florida so snow is never on the weather report, but I can add it to my decor anyway.
Thanks, Kippi! 😀
These turned out so nice and it’s always great to have non toxic craft ideas. Blessings.
Thanks so much, Tonita! 😀
