Yesterday I made a pinecone tree after I saw one in Target that I really liked. I decided I wanted to try and make my own and I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out. I plan on making a few different sizes to use for a table-setting each year. With only a few craft supplies (styrofoam cone, hot-glue, paper and pinecones) and a bit of time gluing the pinecones on, you can make your own too! It took me about 45 minutes to finish one tree. Once you have the process down it moves quickly and if you like to craft, it’s a fun project. In the end, you will have a pretty pinecone tree to pull out of your Christmas box every year ; )
Wrap a green styrofoam cone in brown construction paper, hot-glue it together and then cut the excess paper off of the bottom.Cut a small piece of paper to fit the top of the cone, don’t worry about what it looks like because you will cover it with pinecones. When the cone is completely covered in paper, start hot-gluing pinecones from the bottom up. Bigger pinecones at the bottom and smaller ones towards the top. It’s fine if there are some holes where the paper is visible. When the tree is all together, the holes flow with the look or you can add berries and tiny pinecones in them.
