Pinecone Ornament Instructions


(If you are using pinecones that you have found outside it’s best to place them on a sheet pan in a 200 degree oven for about two hours to kill any bugs that might be in them.)

  • Spray paint each of the pinecones in your desired color. You could leave them plain, too, but for mine I will be painting them so they stand out on my green tree.
  • Once the paint is dry glue small pieces of greenery and berries on the top or large side of the pinecone.

  • Cut a 5-6 inch pieces of ribbon, fold it in half to form a loop and glue the open end down on top of the greenery. This will be how you hang the ornament.
  • Create a bow with the ribbon. I like several loops on mine so I cut a four inch piece of ribbon and set it aside. I then combined two complementary pieces of ribbon about 30 inches long. I then looped my ribbon going back and forth three times between my fingers. Pinching the middle of the ribbon I tied the four inch piece of ribbon around the middle and knotted it tight. Separate the loops and fluff them out. Glue the ribbon to the top of the pinecone.
