Pine Cone Christmas Tree
More Kinder Crafts

A easy-to-make pine cone Christmas Tree. Use it as a Christmas decoration or as a tree ornament. This is a simple craft that even young children can help make.

For each Pine Cone Christmas Tree you will need:
  • a large, open pine cone (pick one that is tree-shaped and stands upright easily)
  • Glitter
  • A few cotton balls
  • White glue (like Elmer's)
  • Dental floss and a needle
  • Small beads
  • A small bow or star to top off your little tree

Thanks to Debbie Blick for the great pine cone christmas tree idea!
Glue a few cotton balls to the bottom of the pine cone. These look like snow and help the "tree" stand upright.
Put a little dab of glue at the tips of the pine cone and then sprinkle on glitter.
String some small beads onto dental floss (about 1 to 1 1/2 ft or more, depending on the size of the pine cone). To string the beads easily, tie one bead securely to the string. Then give the floss to the child for stringing. Older children can use a needle to help with the stringing. When the stringing is done, tie off the last bead with a knot.

Wrap the beads around the pine cone and glue them to the tree.
Top off your tree with a small bow or other decoration.
