It was love at first sight when saw this garland! I knew I could snazzy it up by adding a little snow! Flocked decor is popular this year, and today I am going to show you a couple of easy ways to get that fresh snow covered look onto your decor.

One of the most enchanting things about holiday decorating is snow-covered decorations! I love a good flocked Christmas tree I purchased my second one last year!

Recreating that wintry magic indoors is my favorite way to dress up oour living space during the holiday season. making your own snow covered garland with flocked pine cones is an easy and affordable project that can add a touch of elegance to any room.

To create this stunning snow-covered effect on your garland, one simple technique involves making flocked pine cones.

Flocking refers to the act of dusting or coating an object with fine particles like glitter or powdered snow, creating a snowy appearance.

Start by collecting pine cones from your yard or purchasing them from a craft store. i bought the extra large ones online. They are way bigger than the simple ones you find in the yard.

Then we are going to paint some decoupage on them and dip them in Epsom Salts to cover your pine cones with snow.

Using Epsom Salts, instead of paint to dip the pine cones in, gave them that perfect chunky snow look I was going for.

With just a few simple steps and materials readily available at your craft stores or in nature itself you can create a beautiful garland that you can use for years to come. Follow the steps below to get started!

    Does the salt application stay on the pincones or flake off like flocked branches and cones?

    1. I did this project 3 + years ago and mine still look as good as the day I did them. They are stored in my cool basement though. If you use enough glue you will get a good hold on the salt.

    2. Question for you all…I heard from another Epsom salt user, after a frw weeks the salt evaporated and turned it blue/greenish? Did tou notice any color discoloration?

      1. Hi Kelly,
        I made these a few years ago and the pinecones look just as good as when I made them. I do store them in a cool basement. Perhaps a hot attic could cause them to change like that. I have not seen or heard of this happening. I hope this helps.

The epsom salts really do look like snow…I think I have some in there that even smell good so that’s an added bonus! Might have to try this even for after Christmas
