Panic mode activated because Christmas is in less than 10 days. Like what? Well luckily for all of you, LivForCrafts is back again (make sure to check out my cinnamon stick ornaments craft here). Anyways, these pine cone Christmas trees are so cute and easy to make, because with Christmas right around the corner who has time to spend hours crafting?
I love these pine cone trees because if you don’t have room for a actual Christmas tree, you can display these mini replicas on any dining room table or a window sill. My studio apartment is fully decorated for the holidays thanks to these small crafts, because after all I need something compact, because most days I don’t even have room to store all my clothes, yet alone Christmas decorations.
Bonus points, is that since these trees are made of pine cones, it’ll have your apartment smelling like Christmas. Plus, it uses supplies that you most likely have somewhere around your home, like sequins and wine corks. Because we all been there. Opened up a bottle of wine for “one” glass while watching Netflix and the next thing you know the bottle is empty. Oh well! But make sure to save that wine cork, because wine corks make the perfect addition to any craft, especially a Christmas themed craft, like the one I will be showing you today. So let’s get crafting!
- Pine cones
- Poms poms
- Hot glue gun
- Wine corks
Step 1: Take your pine cone and wine cork and glue the wine cork to the bottom of your pine cone. Your wine cork will act as your “tree stand.”
Step 2: Using your glue gun, have fun decorating your pine cone tree. Remember, there’s no right way to decorate your tree.
I like alternating between buttons, poms poms, and sequins. Even try experimenting with different color schemes. Keep in mind that all pine cones are shaped differently, so one “tree” won’t look alike, so embrace in your pine cones’ uniqueness.
And that is pretty much it. A few extra steps you can take, include using gold paint and carefully paint a thin layer of gold paint on the tips of the pine cones, let it dry, and then glue your decorations. Or you can even decorate the wine cork too.
Most importantly, since this craft is super simple, really have fun customizing this craft and channeling your inner “diy” side. Happy holidays!
