DIY Pinecone Christmas Tree

As of late, my kids and I have been on a total pinecone crafting kick. There’s just something so fun about using them as unconventional tools for making DIY holiday decor. That’s why I’ve been coming up with as many cute pinecone ideas as possible lately! The latest concept was these little pinecone Christmas trees that we made last week. I was so happy with how they turned out that I made one more so I could share how they’re made with anyone else who wants to give them a try.

For this project, you’ll need:

  • A pinecone
  • A sheet of white felt
  • White paint
  • A paintbrush
  • A wooden disc
  • Hot glue
  • A black marker

Step 1:

Gather your materials!

Step 2:

Use your marker to draw the shape o f a star onto your white felt in one corner. Cut the corner out and then carefully cut out the star. Set it aside for later.

Step 3:

Apply a dot of hot glue in the centre of your wooden slide and press the centre bottom of your pinecone down there, oriented so the wider end is the bottom and the smaller tapered end is the top, just like the shape of a Christmas tree.
