And not to brag but, he was so pleased to win first place in the costume contest. Now that our Halloween celebrations are complete we are transitioning over to Christmas. We’ll have the largest tree that we’ve ever had this year so we will need additional ornaments however, I don’t want to spend more on ornaments than the entire cost of the tree.

After I ordered the tree a sinking feeling met my stomach when I realized that I only had enough ornaments for a tabletop tree. It was time to make use of the pinecones and there’s just enough to intersperse throughout the tree.

With the chip brush, brush on just bit of glue on one half of the pinecone and sprinkle on glitter to coat the glue and let dry and then do the other half. Once your pinecones are glittered, tie baker’s twine on the top few bracts of the pinecone and voila – an ornament! Repeat the process above, several dozen more times until you have the number of glitzy pinecones that you need!

    My favorite ornaments are those with special meaning to me. I’m planning on doing some cinnamon ones with the eldest this year, tho. Love your pine cones! They’re one of the most timeless Christmas decoration that can fit into almost any aesthetic.

    I love this. I always try to do some type of craft object with my kids for an ornament and keep it year to year it’s a project we do every year. I hope they never outgrow that tradition.

    Very cute :) My daughter hounds me every year to do this. I need to find some of the fine glitter like yours, all I’ve been able to find is the coarse stuff.

    This brings back some very fond memories of making decorations when I was younger. Living in Georgia, Pine cones are in abundance right outside of our door. We need to do this again, so much fun! Yours is really pretty!

    Once you have glittered them if you spray them with hairspray you wont have to worry about glitter everywhere!
