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.

Directions:

  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.
  4. Now you have a miniature Christmas tree! Put it on display wherever you like.
