Pinecone Christmas Ornaments

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments

We gathered quite a few pine cones this year so thought it will be good to have a go at transforming them in decorations for our Christmas tree.

First I painted them – Some in white and some in gold. I left them on the counter to dry for a couple of days and than the really fun part started.


You can let your little ones help you with painting as its a fairly easy job to do. My girls adore colouring:


I tried out ribbons in different colours to decorate the pine cones. Everything I had around the house really – pink, white and gold and gold or simply red elastic. I simply wanted first to see how they are going to look and than decide the design I wanted to go for. I ended up with lots of different combinations but I think these are quite good to give away as presents to family and friends too so…all good there.

Which colour do you like more?

I hanged the pinecones in different ways too – some from the top, some from the bottom and to some I made bows to some I didn’t.

Supplies To Make Colourful Pom Pom Christmas Tree Cards

  • pine cones 
  • white and gold paint 
  • glue gun
  • glue
  • ribbon – pink, gold, white (any colour you wish really)
  • coloured rhynestones 

I know, I know. These pinecones Christmas ornaments are ridiculously easy! But you know what? They turned out surprisingly beautiful, and they are going to look amazing on our tree! I promise I will take pictures and show them to you.  And the best part was that both my 3 year old and 7 year old could help make them. They are pretty much fool proof, even for a three year old!

Steps to follow:

  • colour the pinecones and let them dry
  • make bows and hanging loops out of the ribbons you chose
  • using the glue gun and stick the bows and loops to the pinecones
  • add rhinestones if you wish too
  • let the glue dry and you are finished
