{Handmade Christmas Ornament No. 19}

Hello friends, I’m Lucy from Craftberry Bush and I am honoured to be part of Stephanie Lynn’s Homemade Ornament series. I have enjoyed seeing all of the beautiful ornaments and have been inspired by so much talent that I hope to return the favour….


Today I want to show you how I made this snowy mini pine cone ornament using items you might have at hand…..


You will need:
Mini pine cones
Newspaper print paper or a brown paper bag
Masking tape
Brown paint
Artificial snow batting
Epson salt
White glue
Berries and greenery for embellishment
Ribbon
Soda pop tab
Hot glue gun

1. Form paper into a sphere and use masking tape to hold it together (note: I elected to use paper instead of a Styrofoam ball as the paper is more pliable and the pine cones fit nicely into each other)

2. Paint the bottom part of the sphere brown, leaving the top unpainted as this is where the ‘snow’ will be placed

3. With hot glue gun, glue pine cones individually making sure they fit nicely into each other

4. You can cover the bottom part of the sphere only as the top will be covered with ‘snow’

5. Apply hot glue to top of sphere and spread batting across the top. Hot glue soda tab vertically on top of the ornament as this will be used to hang the ornament (not pictured)

6/7. Apply a thick coat of glue over batting and cover with Epson salt

I used berries and winter greens to embellish the ornament and tied a ribbon to the top.

There you have it – a super easy and pretty little pine cone ornament using inexpensive items from around your home. I hope you enjoyed it!
