How to Glitter Pinecones for Holiday Decorations

I have a love for gold, glitter, and DIY, so I thought it would be fun to do a little project to add to my Christmas decor this year. My mom recently purchased glittered pinecones and that pretty much inspired me to do them myself. They came out so pretty – I love them! They are super easy to do, even for a person new to DIY! Check out more DIYs on my Pinterest board!

Here is all that you will need: pinecones – I purchased a bag of these at Michael’s, Recollections Gold Glitter, a paint brush and Mod Podge.

Step 1: Brush mod podge onto any area of the pinecone that you want glitter on.

Step 2: Sprinkle gold glitter onto pinecone

Step 3: Shake off excess glitter and let it dry!

Some of my pinecones have glitter practically everywhere and some I just sparkled out the tips/edges. Either way, they look great!

I displayed my pinecones on a glass cake stand with a cute little owl!

I am really happy with the way everything turned out!! The gold tree on the other cake stand was white and I decided to glitter that out too!

A Little Christmas Inspiration!

I love December! Everyone seems so happy and in the holiday spirit, my kids love the house all decorated and I just love the beauty of it all – trees, lights, the smell of peppermint, family time, lit fireplace, hot chocolate, and sparkly ornaments! Here are a few of my Christmas inspirations for this year!

I love the idea that December is so dreamy and has the power to make people so happy! What a great quote this is!

Not only is this Christmas tree pretty, but I love the DIY garland! Check out the DIY tutorial from The TomKat Studio

My family officially does flocked Christmas trees now!! This is not our tree, but this truly shows the beauty of a white Christmas tree – feels like snow is in the air! I also love the gold chair, sequin pillow and white Moroccan pouf!

Pretty Christmas window display – the ornaments hanging from the rod are so creative, and I love the gingerbread houses as well! So cute!

Love the pure white look of the mantle, stockings and trees! 

This wreath totally pops against the red door РI love the use of fresh apples and acorns. This is super creative and pretty! 

This wall and floating shelf looks so rich with Christmas decor – I love the use of ornaments hung on the wall, gold tones and glass accents!! Beautiful!
