Hello friends! Here's a little about me.. I'm Sarina, a party stylist and blogger over at Joy in the Commonplace. I love to inspire others with fun DIY party and holiday projects. Thank you Jordan for inviting me to share my ideas on your blog! I'm going to show you how to make a fun DIY pine cone ornament to accent your Christmas tree. I'm decorating my tree with gold and bright colors this year, and this pine cone ornament will be the perfect addition! Let's get crafting!
DIY Pine Cone Ornament Supplies
- Pine Cone
- Craft Snow
- School Glue
- Gold Spray Paint
- Hot Glue Gun
Spray Paint Your Pine Cone
First, spray paint your pine cone using gold spray paint. You can also choose your own color or leave the pine cone with a natural look. Make sure to spray from all different angles to cover your whole pine cone. Let it dry completely.
Next, add small dots of glue to the flat surfaces on the pine cone. Bottled school glue works just perfectly for this project and it dries clear! Be sure to use enough glue so the craft snow will stick well.
Sprinkle on the Craft Snow
Guys, I found this craft snow at the Target Dollar Spot and I had a blast crafting with it. In order to create a snow covered affect, I sprinkled snow flakes over the pine cone to cover all the glued areas. If the flakes start to fall off, gently press down on them with your fingers to attach them better. Let the glue dry completely.
Cut Your Hanger
Cut your twine about 4 to 6 inches long to create a hanger for your ornament. If you want, you could also use pretty ribbon or wire to hang your pine cone on your tree.
Attach Your Hanger
Next, glue two small dots of glue to the top of the pine cone using your hot glue gun. Make sure to hide the glue in between the crevices of the pine cone. Attach both ends of your twine to the glue dots to create a loop for hanging. If the twine needs extra reinforcement, add more hot glue to the top of the twine. If your hot glue is showing at all, just add some snow flakes to the top to cover that area.
That's all there is to it! These are seriously so simple to make! Use your creativity and try a different color of spray paint or add cute ribbons to decorate your pine cone ornament.
