Let’s make it!

Making the Pinecone Christmas Tree

If using pinecones collected from outdoors, give them a quick rinse and shake to remove dirt & debris. Let dry completely.

Paint the whole pinecone with the green paint. Clean the brush and allow to dry completely.

I find that the craft paints tend to dry fast so there may not be a huge wait!

Use the clean paint brush to brush glue onto the tips of each “leaf” (or use a glue gun).


Decorate with the pom poms, glitter and other cool embellishments you may have!

Try using some string as garland.

Idea* – Make a bunch, tie some string (or use an ornament hook) on the top of the pinecones.

String them onto (or hook) a larger string or ribbon to create a garland strand of decorated pinecones!
