DIY Snow Dotted Cone Trees

It’s official! My holiday projects are beginning and I could not be more excited to share them with you! I love simple holiday decor projects. Ways to make my decorations reflective of my style, but quick enough to finish them in an hour or two. Thats where these paper mache cone trees come in. You may remeber these copper splatter painted trees I made a few years ago with paper mache cones. Today, however, I am giving the cone trees a snowy look with the help of a little white paint. ¬†These DIY snow dotted cone trees make for the perfect candy colored Christmas!

Begin by giving your cones a coat or two of craft paint, then let dry.

Next, we are going to paint white snow dots all over the trees similar to my pink snow wrapping paper that you see below the trees. To do this I just slipped the tree onto my hand and then used the back of the paint brush dipped in white paint to dot on various sized “snow flake” dots. The more varied in size and placement the better.

Another option for a sightly different look is to use a small paint brush to add snow brushstrokes to the trees. Or do a combo of both for a pretty assortment.
