These natural pine cone ornaments are not only beautiful; they’re easy to make and inexpensive as well. All it takes are some pinecones (gathered for free in our case), spray paint, ribbon, and a glue gun. I chose to make them using metallic gold paint and gold ribbon, but they could be made in whatever color suited the decorating situation.
Simply spray the pine cones with the paint, let dry, and attach the ribbon with the glue gun so they can be hung from the tree. I used prefab ribbon hangers – they were inexpensive and it was worth it to me not to deal with creating the ribbon hangers. I think these pine cone ornaments add a beautiful natural element to a tree, they’re so easy to do, and last from year to year if handled carefully. I might just have to try a few more in different colors, or with glitter…..the possibilities are really endless!
