DIY Pinecone Ornament #1 – Christmas Tree Pinecone Ornaments

First up is the easiest of all 3 pinecone crafts and oh so cute- Christmas Tree Pinecone Ornaments!

Kids will light up with excitement getting to select the colors to decorate their tree with and this pinecone craft can be created super quickly.

Supplies Needed: 

How to Make Christmas Tree DIY Pinecone Ornaments

Step 1: Paint the outside area of the pinecones green with a foam brush and let dry.

You could also use regular paintbrushes, but I think foam brushes are easier for kid’s to handle, and you have better control at where you put the paint on your pinecones.

For the green paint, I used the shade “Christmas Tree Green” and it was the perfect festive green shade.

Tip: If you don’t want to get paint all over your table, I recommend using paper plates or a disposable table cloth to help contain the mess. πŸ˜‰

Step 2: Once the pinecones are dry, begin decorating the trees by placing colored pom poms in various spots on the pinecones.

We ended up going traditional with our colors and used green and red pom poms, but you can have fun here and use any colors you want.

Step 3: Hot glue the pom poms in place and place a yellow pom pom on top to represent the Christmas tree’s star.

Cut out a small piece of ribbon or thread and glue with a hot glue gun on the back of the pinecone ornament for hanging.
