The Christmas decorating has begun in our house and I couldn’t be happier! So far we have the trip up, outdoor lights up, and a few DIY décor projects are in the works. But today, before revealing our tree and outdoor lights, I want to show you how I made some fabulous DIY Knockoff Pottery Barn Glitter and Snow Pinecones…that were super easy and inexpensive to make!

I originally saw these pinecones over at Pottery Barn….

This is part of Pottery Barn’s Arctic Christmas going on this year

I absolutely love the look of mixing glitz and glam with nature and so creating glitter and snow pinecones was one of the first thoughts that came to mind. I already pinecones on hand {thanks to my sweet friend Jessica} and spray adhesive so I ran over to Hobby Lobby and picked up some glitter and crystal filler {found in Wedding section}.

Supplies needed:

·         Pinescones {various sizes looks best}

·         Glitter {color of your choice…I chose silver}

·         Crystal color filler

·         Spray Adhesive

·         Jute twine

·         Hot glue gun/glue sticks

How to make them: 

·         Use a piece of cardboard, scrap wood, or something sturdy that you don’t mind getting flitter and spray adhesive on

·         Set your pinecones out on your solid, sturdy surface evenly spaced {give at least 1” in distance between pinecones}

·         Using your spray adhesive spray a few of your pinecones. You may need to pick them up to get all around the pinecone evenly. Make sure you get it good..but you can apply as much or as little as you chose.

·         Next, grab your flitter and begin sprinkling it all over your pinecone. Again, you may need to pick up the pinecone to make sure you get glitter in all of the little books and crannies.

·         Once you have all of your pinecones glittered, let them sit and dry for about 5 minutes.

·         Your next step is to spray the pinecones again with spray adhesive and then take a pinch full of crystal color fill and sprinkle them over your pinecone. You can add them to just the tops or the edges or do it however you chose.

·         Let the pinecone dry completely. I let mine dry overnight {but read the directions on the back of your spray adhesive for drying times}

·         Lastly, it’s time to turn your pinecones into ornaments. To rid of excess glitter and crystals, light shake your pinecones.

·         Using hot glue, apply a glob {yes this is a technical term} to the top {or bottom if you want them upside down} of your pinecone

·         Take a piece of jute twine {I cut mine in 4-5” long pieces} and attach it to the pinecone making a loop to hang on your tree.

Here’s how ours turned out….

I am so in love with how they turned out and to think how easy this project was. From start to finish I would say it would take about 2 hours if you didn’t let your pinecones dry overnight like I did. The glitter and crystals add just enough glitz to give your nature inspired ornament a little glam.


So, what do you think?


Do you plan to make some DIY Knockoff Pottery Barn pinecones for your tree too?


Are you making any other DIY ornaments?

      Denial color fill was located near the floral and wedding accessories department at Hobby Lobby. You could always ask someone who works at the store where it’s at as well, in case yo go somewhere else like Joann’s, Michael’s, or Craft Warehouse.

    Beautiful! I really want to make these, but am new to crafts and have no idea what color fill is and where you buy it. Thanks for sharing!!

      Hey Misty, color fill is just a type of crystal looking bead that can simulate the look of ice on the pinecones. It comes in different colors, but for this project I used clear.hope this helps :)

    Hi Jennifer! Great “toot!” However, I am a long-time crafter but completely in the dark on the “Crystal color filler.” I have spent a good 45 mins online trying to figure out what that is. I’ve been on the Hobby Lobby website and nothing comes up. In one of your responses you gave a brand name of “Denial,” but that didn’t help either. Yes, I am a blonde, but I can usually find what I’m looking for. I have a huge box of pine cones ready to go (yes, I’m a little ahead of the game being that it’s mid-August) due to your inspiration, but now I am stuck! Please help! Forever in your debt! :)

      I am going to spray my cones w/adhesive & lightly shake them in a paper bag w/glitter in it. It should be a quicker method…& less messy…I hope!

    Good day,
    I live in beautiful Lake Tahoe and have abundance of pine cones available for the holidays. Sugar pines, medium and small are available for sale at this time. Please let me know before our snow hits for the winter.

    Have a blessed day !

    Thank goodness I am not the only person who does not know what crystal color glass filler is. I found filler that looks like chunks of ice, flat glass globs and some kind of a gel mixture, gravel, and just plain old rocks. I doubt any of these were was was used in the project. I will keep on looking but will probably just give up and use plain glitter and wonder why my pinecones didn’t look as nice as yours. They are gorgeous. Thanks for the tutorial. And if anybody can point me to the crystal color glass filler I would appreciate it. Thanks!
