DIY Pine Cone Christmas Tree Craft

Sharing is caring!

The holiday season is a perfect time for crafting, and this pine cone Christmas tree is such a cute craft! It’s easy, too. (And easy is just what we want during this busier-than-usual month, right?) Once you gather your supplies, you and your kids can make a whole collection of pine cone Christmas trees.

I love how each one will be unique, reflecting the personality of the child who made it. (I might be a little sentimental, but I love saving the crafts my kids make. So each year, when I pull out the Christmas decorations, they can find the cute things they made in years past. And no, I don’t save everything … just most things.)

Okay, let’s do this!

How to Make the Pine Cone Christmas Tree

Step 1:

Cut out a small piece of brown craft foam and roll it into a tube-like pattern. Apply hot glue to secure the rolled pattern. This will be the trunk of the pine cone Christmas tree.

This next part allows you and your kids to employ some creativity to the pine cone Christmas trees that you’re making. You’ll be gluing the pearl beads to the pine cone. You can also use other colors of beads, such as red or green, to add some color. Simply apply a drop of glue wherever you want to add the beads and then place the bead on the glue.

Step 5:

I am using a wire star charm to decorate the top side of the pine cone tree; you can also cut out a star shape from golden craft paper or even use golden wire and design your own star.
