Pinecone Christmas tree ornament

Can you believe it’s only 9 weeks until Christmas? Where on earth has that time gone?! We don’t generally put our decorations up until the first of December but we love to have as many handmade ones as possible. We recently collected some pinecones and have slowly been turning into decorations for my sons tree. This pinecone Christmas tree ornament is probably my favourite so far purely because it is so simply and fun, whilst I did use a glue gun to make mine, my preschool aged son made an absolutely fab one all by himself using Pva glue (I did use my glue gun to attach the ribbon)! They really are a fun craft for children and adults alike.

You will need

A Pinecone
Green paint
Paintbrush
Small pom poms
1 Regular yellow/gold Pom Pom
Glue gun or Pva glue
Ribbon

To start making your Christmas tree; coat your pinecone in a layer of green paint and allow to dry.

Use your glue to attach your little multi-coloured Pom Poms to the ‘branches’ of your pinecone tree. These will be your tree decorations!

Glue your large yellow/gold Pom Pom to the top of your pinecone, this will be your star. Your pinecone Christmas tree is finished! If you wish to hang your ornament check out the next step to see how.

To hang your ornament; take a length of ribbon and tie it into a loop. Use your glue (a hot glue gun works best) to glue the knotted end of your loop into the top of your pinecone between branches. Then place a dab of glue onto your star Pom Pom and secure your ribbon there too .

Your tree is finished! How sweet do these little decorations look? They make fab gifts for family and friends too!
