A Late Winter Project...

Everyone brings me pine cones (for my Faerie House roofs) ~

A LOT of pine cones...

I'm not complaining... I love them, and can't resist picking them up myself, still!


So, when I saw this on Pinterest (it's been a while), I did a mental "file-away"

and decided it would be a nice, easy project ~


Here goes... "Frosty" Pine Cones

Pine cones
White Acrylic Paint/Old Brush
White Craft Glue 
Epsom Salts

Brush the tips of the cones with white acrylic paint and let dry.

Then brush over the white acrylic with craft glue;

(I think the original directions said to just used the paint as "glue",

but it really isn't sticky enough) ~ then roll in Epsom Salts.

That's it!

What do you think....Yes?

A "keeper" for next Christmas/Winter?


Keep warm, everyone!
