Pine Cone Ornaments
DIY Mini Pine Cone Ornaments are a cute and inexpensive way to spruce up your home for the holidays. I gathered all my pine cones at a local park and I had plenty of mason jar rims laying around. These also make great gifts!
What you will need:
- Lots and lots of mini pine cones ( I filled a brown paper lunch bag a little over half way and that made 10 ornaments)
- Mason jar lids ( you only need the rims)
- Red ribbon ( Depends on how many you make the amount you will need. I bought a few spolls of the $1 ribbon)
- Sprigs of pine ( 1 sprig per ornament)
- Fake snow and white glitter – optional
The how to:
Step 1: Begin by gluing pine cones around the rim of the mason jar lids. The first few are the trickiest, you have to hold them in place for a minute or two until the glue dries and they stick. Once you get the first few to stick the rest go on much easier.
- If the pine cones are closed it means they are damp. If you lay them on a cookie sheet for a few hours they should dry out and open back up. You can also put them in the microwave for a few seconds ONLY to open back up.
Step 2: Once you finish gluing pine cones to the rim then begin gluing them around the front of the rim. Make sure to hold each pine cone in place for a few seconds so they stay secure.
- You can pick off the excess glue when you are finished.
Should look like this:
Step 3: Using a hot glue gun, embellish with sprig of pine and red bow for hanging. I also sprayed a little fake snow on them, this is optional.
