Snowy pinecone centerpiece

Turn natural materials into a festive centerpiece with a little dusting of faux snow
Jil Peters

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.
