The Tiniest Pine Cone Christmas Trees

I am a sucker for tiny and adorable things. I got the idea to make pine cone Christmas trees and just had a lot of fun making these super fun and fast decorations. I have told you that I keep pine cones. I use them for year round decor, but love the cinnamon scented ones that are abundant around the holidays.

How sweet are these? and they are extremely low budget too. You’ll need some nice large pine cones, a glue gun and some rounds. I used the wooden pieces I get in ribbon spools, you can use thread spools, or dowels. or nothing.

I cut rounds of burlap then hot glued the burlap to the round, and then tied twine around it.

to that twine bow, I added a couple rusted jungle bells. ( it’s easy to rust them, put them in a cup with some vinegar and sea salt. leave them a few days and they will be rusty)

Next, I made a cute little star. You could certainly cut out or punch a star. I used a gold pipe cleaner, and folded it into equal sized pieces.

I took the bottom two points and then turned the other folded points into a star. I hot glued the two cut ends together.

Now glue the star atop the tree.

Almost finished! we just have to glitter them now.

Take your Elmer’s glue and just coat the tips of the pine cone.

I found that turning the cone so that the underside showed more, was easier to get that coated first.

Then set it down and sprinkle the glitter from above.
