Make Your Own Glittery Pinecone Ornaments! Kid Friendly!

Glittery Pinecone Ornament
Our favorite ornaments to make are glittery pinecones!
They are fun and super easy!

Supplies needed for Glittery Pinecones:

  • Pinecones
  • Glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Glitter
I used craft glue so I knew it would hold the ribbon. Just paint the pine cones and cover with glitter. Then add glue to the top and rest the ribbon in it until it dries.
You can decided the right length of ribbon in which you’ll need.
The boys have also made these for family members to make on their trees too!
If you don’t live where you can easily find pinecones outside places like Michael’s and AC Moore sell them fairly cheap too!

    oh I did these alst year with the girls after I saw them in Texas on a blog trip. The store was selling them for 10 bucks each! They were alot of fun to do! We did the glitter in a box.

    Pretty! I just collected some pine cones at a friends house so that my 3 year old and I could do something like this with them! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    These are VERY pretty. I will have to keep them in mind for next year. I think my little girl is too young for it this year and I’d have glitter all over the house. LoL!

    I remember making these when my sister and I were younger and they are super fun and definitely pretty easy…And the mess isn’t TOO horrible xD

    We did this last year and my son loved it and wants to do it again this year. The only difference is instead of us using a paint brush, I put some glue on a small styrofoam plate and he just rolled the pine cone in the glue. They turned out great!

  7. These are very cute and cheap! Great idea for us to make this year! Thanks!

    I use spray craft adhesive! Gets in all the nooks and crannies! Then put different colores of glitter in paper bags and shake. then tie ribbon on when dry.
