The great thing about pine cone ornaments is that you can be as simple or extravagant as you want! These are the supplies I used but feel free to do whatever you want. Spray Glitter would make these a snap or adding sequins would be fun too! Or you can just buy scented pine cones, tie ribbon on them and hang them in your tree without any extra decorating. Mine are cinnamon scented. We’ll have a mix of decorated and non on our tree. These pine cones are great to do during the day for a craft or for family night activity.
Pom poms (or sequins, bells or whatever you want)
1. I would suggest putting your ribbon on first. We didn’t do that and were sad when our pine cones were covered in glitter glue and we couldn’t get the ribbons on without dipping them into the glue repeatedly! I also tried to pick out cones that had some stem I could use to tie the ribbon on. If yours don’t, try hot gluing your ribbon on.
3. Let dry. The glitter glue does take a while to dry to have a place prepared that you’ll be able to hang these while they dry.
Here are some pictures of our creations.
