A fun, colorful tree decoration or use them in baskets

With a disposable foam paintbrush, dab white craft glue on the other edges of the scales. {
Petals}
Hold the cone over a small bowl, and sprinkle it with spoonfuls of glitter, letting the excess fall back into the bowl.

Pine Cone Projects Are Fun
Pinecone Christmas Trees
Using Putka Pods or  Casuarina Pods or Sea Shells
This is fun, eh?

Pinecones & Materials Needed~
Pine cones ~
Flat bottom Pinecones that are "tree" shaped and stand upright without tipping over.

For Nice Big Trees:  ~ Longleaf Pines are awesome.
For Small Trees ~
Austrian Black or Pitch Pine.

Make sure the cone you choose is fully opened with a flat bottom.
Bag of small to medium Sea Shells  or
Multi-Colored Putka Pods or Multi-Colored Casuarina Pods
Glue Gun and Glue sticks OR Regular Clear Drying Glue
Dried Colorful Starfish

How to Put it All Together ~
Dab a drop of glue or hot glue on a few petals of the pinecone.
Take a seashell or colored pod and stick it in the glue.
Do every single petal.
Glue the
Starfish on the top petal for the "Tree topper".

For smaller cones, they make wonderful tree ornaments by tying cording around the topmost pinecone petals.
The larger cones such as a Big Longleaf Pine, looks great standing on it's own or in a group of SeaShell or Pod cones in varying heights.

~ Fragrant Holiday Spice Pinecones
~
This is fun, eh?

Pinecones & Materials Needed ~
Any pine cone will work for this project.
Any brand of white glue
Ground Holiday-type spices such as: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves, Allspice
Optional: Basket or Bowl
Pine or Spruce branches
Ribbon

How to Put it All Together ~
1.  Paint edges of pinecones with white glue and sprinkle with spice (or spices) of your choice.  Tap off excess spice. Let dry.
2. Attach a ribbon to the top or bottom of the pinecone for an ornament. Or you can use them as a decorative accent by putting them into a holiday bowl or basket. If you'd like, add some pine or spruce branches for the total 'Holiday' Scent that smells like Christmas!

This is another simple craft to do with children!

Pine Cone Firestarter Projects
PineConeLady's Popular Pine Cone Teddy Bear Ornament
This is fun, eh?

Pinecones & Materials Needed ~
4 Pine cones for Arms & Legs  Choose from: White Spruce, Red Spruce,
Small Douglas Fir or Small Colorado Blue Spruce.
1 Large and 1 Medium
Austrian Black Pine, or Pitch Pine Cones.
2 petals cut from
Eastern White Pine.
Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Small, thin ribbon


How to Put it All Together ~
Use the large cone for the tummy and the medium cone for the head.
1. With base of cones at back, shimmy the petals of the medium pinecone into the petals of the large pinecone.
2. Glue the Pinecones together.
3. Glue arm cones at the point the head and body cones meet. They tuck in real nice there. Then glue the leg cones into the bottom of the big pinecone.
4. Use 2 pinecone petals for the ears. Glue between the petals of the pinecone head.

For decoration, I like to make a little ribbon bowtie or flower and glue it the front of the teddy bear where the head and tummy cones meet!


This is still my Favorite decoration all year 'round!  ~ They make great gift. Can also be tucked in with the bow on top of a wrapped gift ~ The PineConeLady ~

Pine Cone Firestarter Projects
~ Pinecone Angel ~
This is fun, eh?
Another Favorite Decoration to make! Pine cone Angels are great
for Holiday Ornaments, but they are Wonderful all year 'round!

I attach one or two Pinecone Angels to my Baby Shower or Christening Gifts. I also created "theme" Angels and give them as gifts to my Friends. An example would be my "Kitchen Angel" that would hang in their kitchen. A cute decoration and a way to remember that I am "hanging around" and am always there if they need me. I also make an Angel and a Teddy Bear Ornament to give to a Mom or Daddy. A little imagination and thoughtfulness goes a long way!

Pinecones & Materials Needed ~
Pinecone for Angel Body:
You can use a Douglas Fir, Scotch Pine, White Spruce or a small pinecone.

For the Head:
Sweetgum ball or large roundish Acorn
You can also use a small round wooden bead or ball that would be
in proportion to the body.
Paint a little face on the Acorn, Bead or Ball. If you decide to spray paint the body and head, paint the face on after they are dry.

For the Halo:
Silver or Gold Pipe Cleaner made into a circle that attaches to the head.
You can also use a small string of metallic beads.

For the Wings:
2 silk leaves spray painted gold or silver
You can also cut stiff lace into 2 wings or use a wide piece of lace that you gather
then tie in the center for 'ruffled' wings.
I have used bow-tie noodles for the wings when making this craft with kids.
Somehow, kids really love to craft with noodles, eh?!

Metallic  or White Spray Paint
Clear Spray Polyurethane
Glue Gun and Sticks
Thin Metallic Cord or thin Organza Ribbon

How to Put it All Together ~
1. Glue the Acorn Head to the Pinecone Body. Let dry completely.
If you choose to, spray paint the head and body metallic or white.
I leave my pinecone and acorn natural most of the time.

2. Glue whichever type of wings you chose, to the back of the pinecone between the head and the body.

3.Take your the small circle of metallic beads or pipe cleaner and tie the ribbon or metallic cord to both sides. Glue the halo on top of the head.
I have found that this way of attaching the ribbon or cord keeps the angel hanging straight.
If you prefer to make your angel look as though it's flying over you, tie the cord around the 'neck' before adding the wings. This will make the angel tilt forward when it's hanging.

4. Make sure to spray the entire Angel with Clear Polyurethane to preserve it.

This is another fun craft to do with children!
Just have the metallic spray painted items ready to go ahead of time.

~ PineConeLady's Favorite Thanksgiving Pinecone Turkey ~
A fun, colorful table decoration or for place settings at Thanksgiving dinner.
This is fun, eh?

Pinecones & Materials Needed ~
Pine cones ~ Austrian Black Pine or Slash Pine for a big Turkey.
Red Spruce for head
1 red chenille stem for Neck
Feathers
Glue that dries clear

How to Put it All Together ~
To make a Pinecone Turkey, cut off the pointed tip of a cone and glue to the other end of a pipe cleaner for the neck. {Oops, called Chenille stems now! LOL}.
Add a very small cone for the head. You can also made the head with a piece of styrofoam, or modeling clay.
Glue red string or yarn wattles to the turkey's head.
Glue on Chenille stems for legs, then  bend and fold the end over to make the feet and glue to a piece of bark, wood or cardboard so it {the turkey} can stand upright.
I make the turkey tail with 7 feathers.
Dip the end of each feather into the  glue and tuck it between the pinecone petals near back end.
One in the middle, then three on each side, one behind the other like a fan.
Do different colored feathers, or all the same. Really looks great! You can even tuck a name card in the pinecone as well ~
