Pinecone Tree Craft


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.

    Jas, you can always buy mini pinecones at your local craft store 🙂 Although, a larger version of this would be beautiful too! Thanks for the comments everyone! XO

    LOVE It. I know need to get all the stuff online to make it. I wonder what it will look like if I mix in pinecones with christmas ornaments or dip the end of pine cones in silver or gold. BUT LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea. Project for me this weekend. Also, can you suggest any idea on how to make babies first ornament. I just have my son 10 months ago and can not find a fun and nice ornament to be his first and need ideas:)

  8. […] Dit vind ik echt heel erg leuk; een boompje van dennenappels. Je maakt het heel eenvoudig door een piepschuimen kegelvorm te beplakken met bruin dik papier of buigbaar karton. Lijm vervolgens de dennenappels met het lijmpistool op het karton. Doe de grote dennenappels onderaan en de kleinere bovenaan. Je hoeft je niet druk te maken om eventuele gaten, die kun je opvullen met mini-dennenappeltjes of besjes of (als kerst er echt aankomt) met minikerstballetjes. Nu al een beetje kerst in huis!
