Snow cones

Use household items to create a snowy centerpiece

All the holiday glitter out there is fun, but don't overlook the magic in the natural materials around you. Plain white acrylic paint and a small foam brush are all you need to transform a pile of humble pinecones into a snowy centerpiece that will be welcome this hectic season. Just touch the tips of the pinecones with the brush, let the paint dry, then place the cones in a simple white bowl. ― Jil Peters
