These sweet little decorations couldn’t be easier or more affordable! And as an added bonus, your family can spend a little time in nature collecting the necessary materials!
Our family picked up these pine cones after a great day out on the farm this fall. We grabbed a few up with the intention of making something with them later.
Needing to keep two active kiddos busy on a Sunday afternoon after church, I grabbed the pine cones and told them we were getting in the Christmas spirit. This craft was pretty hassle free and kept the kids occupied for about an hour.
Here’s what you will need:
›› pine cones
›› pom poms or other decorations (here’s your chance to get creative)
›› paint brush
›› hot glue gun
›› wooden circles (optional)
Simply paint the pine cones green, or opt for a colorful craft and go bold with fun colors! Once the paint is dry, add white paint to the edges of the pine cone for a flocked look. Next, it’s time to decorate. We opted for simple, colorful pom poms, but you can use ribbon, pipe cleaner, fabric, even glitter if you are brave!
Attach the pine cone to a wooden circle to create a tabletop decoration.
Happy crafting, friends!
