Snow Covered Garland Holiday Decor
Super easy tutorial on how to make a Snow Covered Garland. First, we are going to flock some large pinecones with Epsom salt to create this beautiful holiday garland. This project is one of my favorites from my Christmas crafts collection.
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.
This is another super easy project from #fabulouslyfestive for JoAnn Fabrics Celebrate the Season Campaign. If you missed the first one, click to check out my Gold Feather Stocking here.
Snow Covered Garland Holiday Decor
- 1 Holiday Traditions Pine Garland (on a rope)
- 2 Large Pine Cones
- 1 Holiday Traditions Jingle Bell Hanger
- Spray on Buffalo Snow or other faux snow
- Jute twine
- Epsom Salt,
- Mod Podge decoupage medium
- Sponge applicator
Snow Flocked Pine Cones:
Pour Epsom Salt into a large bowl.
Heavily apply the Mod Podge decoupage medium to the top and edges of the pine cone with a sponge applicator.
Dip the pine cone into the Epsom Salt and roll it around to cover all the decoupage medium. Let it dry for 24 hours. Shake loose the excess salt from the cone.
Hang your garland. Take the bells off of the Jingle Bell Hanger.
Add a small piece of twine to attach the bells. and tie it to the garland.
Take a piece of twine and stick it in between pine cone layers and tie it to the garland. Take your garland outside and spray with the Buffalo Spray Snow. And that’s it! Super easy and so pretty!

Does the salt application stay on the pincones or flake off like flocked branches and cones?
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.
Your epson salt with Mod Podge combo on pine cones worked brilliantly… Thank you!!!!!!
Oh great glad to help! You welcome!
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?
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.
I love this garland! It turned out perfect!
What a fun project! Such a pretty garland!
This is very cute and great tutorial!
This is an adorable idea! You can add this snow to just about any decoration. Thank you for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you next week.
It’s Deonna from the Child at Heart blog! Thank you so much for linking up at the Merriest Blog Hop! I can’t wait to see all of your holiday ideas this month! 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
Such a beautiful garland, all the natural pretty things on it. The bells are so cute, haven’t seen any of those. I have lots of bells but can’t get to them darn it. Love to use them for so many decorating projects during the holiday season. Your Garland is perfect. Happy holidays
This is beautiful! :-) I’m a new FB and Twitter follower stopping by from Moonlight and Mason jars!
Very cool in the truest sense of the word!
Beautiful pine cones, and the look of snow is perfect! What a great idea, using the bath salts. Good job!
Soooo pretty, Kim! Gotta love that Buffalo Snow! Although I’ve never heard it called that before. I’m more familiar with Santa Snow. lolol!
‘Buffalo Snow’ is a brand name
