Introduction: Pinecone Tree Decoration

While out hiking we came across numerous beautiful pinecones. After collecting quite a few we decided to turn them into decorations for Christmas (around our house and gifts). These pinecone trees are easy to make and add a warm, woodsy touch to your holiday décor.

Supplies

cereal box

scissors

tape

pinecones

hot glue gun and sticks of glue

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

cereal box

scissors

tape

pinecones

hot glue gun and sticks of glue

Step 2: Make the Cone

Cut open a cereal box so that it is flat. Roll from one corner to create a cone shape. Tape together and cut off excess cardboard. Cut the bottom so it sits flat.

Step 3: Cut Off the Pinecone Scales

Using sharp scissors cut off each scale from the peduncle (the center of the pinecone).

Step 4: Glue

Using hot glue, glue scales of pinecones to the cardboard cone. Glue rows all the way up the cone until all of the cardboard is covered. Place a small grouping of the pinecone in the tip of the cone and secure with a small amount of hot glue to finish off the tree. Add your beautiful tree to your home holiday décor or wrap it carefully for a gift.

Note: You can also spray paint the entire tree (gold, silver or other color of your liking). Add a small amount of glitter on the ends using mod podge. We decided to keep our trees 'rustic' looking. Your choice - enjoy!
