This past week one of my good friends saw at Target a very pretty Christmas ornament made out of very small pine cones; they were absolutely adorable but a little too expensive. We decided to put our crafting skills to work and re-create the ornaments ourselves.You will only need four things for this craft and you can get at least four ornaments depending on the size of your foam balls.I have added links to the materials and where to find them; except the hot glue gun that I've had for ages, but you can find them pretty much anywhere. I hope you give this a try!
1. Foam balls- Joan's Fabric
2. Baby Pine Cones- Joan's Fabric
3. Twine- We had it laying around the house, but you can find it at Joan's Fabric or any crafting store.
4. Hot glue gun
Start gluing the baby pine cones to the foam ball one by one (Be careful not to get the glue gun too close to the foam because it will open a hole.) It is a little time consuming, but put a movie on and get some snacks and glue away! I will go faster than you think.
When you are half way gluing the pine cones, glue your twine to the ball with more hot glue and continue gluing the rest of the pine cones to the ball. Arrange the baby pine cons around and choose the smallest ones to glue on top of the twine to hide it.
And you are done! Your very own baby pine cone Christmas ornament! If you like some glitter and sparkle, brush a thin layer of glue to the tip of the pine cone and dip them in some glitter! I think it will give a very cute effect! I hope you enjoyed this simple DIY and Merry Christmas everyone!
