Pinecone Christmas Tree

This wee little tree may be smaller than your average evergreen, but it packs a lot of Christmas spirit! A fun craft to make at school or at home, kids can place this decoration in their room or give it to a friend. While your child is working on this craft, you can work on making a pretty pinecone project of your own like this Metallic Pinecone Tree.

Supplies & Tools:

  • Pinecone*
  • Empty spool of thread
  • Glue
  • Glitter glue
  • Little pompoms

*If gathering pinecones from outside, place on a cookie sheet and place in oven at 200–250° Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes to dry any excess moisture. Remove pinecones from oven and let cool for 30 minutes.


  1. Glue spool to bottom of pinecone.
  2. Apply glitter glue to pinecone tips. Let dry.
  3. Glue little pompoms to some of the tips.
