Snowy Pine Cone Cluster

Hi Monday Friends… I’ve got a cute project to share with you guys today.

Epsom salt pine cones… These were easy to make and are adorable.

My youngest daughter helped me brush on the modge podge and then we sprinkled epsom salt all over the pine cones.

A great craft to do with your little ones.

I cut strips of burlap and hot glued them to the base of the pine cone.

Then I gathered some together to create a cute cluster to hang in our bathroom.

A little snowy goodness for the bathroom.  The rest are going on the mantel (stay tuned)…

    I was looking on Home talk & saw this wonderful craft, I Clicked the link to see the step~by~step instructions & was brought to your page. 1) I love the great idea. I have had these pinecones for about 7yrs. now, They range from very large to tinny tiny… I can’t wait till my daughter gets home from school, I’ve got the pinecones, glue, ribbon & Epson salt all ready to go. 2)Love your page & wonderful ideas, Thank you….

    I love this idea! Hope you don’t mind if I make some of these adorable ornaments for my tree. I am doing a rustic, country theme this year and these would be perfect :)

    I’ve seen a lot of projects made with Epsom salt and was wondering if the crystals shed? Also would they damage the floor or furniture if they fell off. The pine cones look really pretty and I really want to try this.

      Dorothy F ~ I gave them a gentle shake to remove the excess salt that might be stuck between. I have no idea on the damage issue. I guess it’s possible. I’d happily tear out all my flooring tomorrow, so it wasn’t on my mind. I put epsom salt on plastic Easter eggs a few years ago and when I pull them out of storage the salt is still intact, so it seems to help well.
