Today is all about the crafts my friends and I can’t wait to show you how easy it was to make this lovely Pinecone Christmas Tree.

This DIY Pinecone Christmas Tree is not only super easy to make, but with it's classic style and neutral colours, it's the perfect addition to any holiday decor!
 

I started with a simple cardboard cone form – I actually picked a few of them up last year at Hobby Lobby to make these Festive Cone Christmas Trees and had an extra kicking around, but you can find a similar one here).

With a pile of pinecones (I chose to add in a few “snow covered” ones) and my trusty hot glue gun in hand, I simply started attaching pinecone to cardboard. I worked my way up from the bottom, adding a very liberal amount of hot glue to each pinecone and then just holding it onto the cardboard cone until it was good and stuck.

I must admit it was a pretty slow process, with the entire 22″ tree taking me almost an hour to cover, but I’m so in love with this little tree that it was all totally worth it!

  1. Kristi – we had no idea that this is how pinecone trees are created. Your tree is adorably cute and rustic. Love how you paired the pinecone tree with other natural elements on your mantel. Thanks for the tutorial because now we can make some for ourselves. So happy to share tour week with you…Merry Christmas!

  2. I LOVE your pinecone tree!! I used a pinecone tree in my decor this year, but it was a gift from a friend. After seeing yours, I want to build a forest of pinecone trees!

    Thank you so much for being a part of the HFTH tour this year! Merry Christmas!

    1. Awwww, thank you SO much Sondra! I’m so happy you’re feeling inspired! And SUCH a HUGE thanks for inviting me to join in the fun! It’s been such a great way to connect with new bloggy friends and readers!

    1. Thank you SO, SO much Sarah! I couldn’t agree more – I love, love, love using natural elements in my decor all year round and this is such a fun way to step things up for the holidays! Thanks again!!!

  3. Hi Kristi, I have been collecting pine cones from our yard for months to make some of these pine cone trees, but my pine cones are much larger. I’m not sure how these would look made with the large ones, but I think I’m going to give it a try. And thanks for telling me about the cardboard cones. Since I have only seen the Styrofoam ones, I will be on the lookout for some. Pinning and sharing!

    1. SO smart Jane! All this snow on the ground around here has been making me wish I had collected a few more too! I would definitely give it a try, I think you could make the bigger ones overlap a bit more to add a bit more shape to it all too! Thanks so much!

    1. Oh, we do too Maryann! My son and I often wander the neighbourhood with his little wagon full of pinecones (and rock collections because apparently you can never have too many of those!). Thank you so much!

  4. I love decorating with pinecones. The tree turned out perfect and I love the size of it. Your whole mantel looks gorgeous. I love how relaxing and welcoming it feels.

  5. I love the rustic beauty of this pine cone tree! It is so simple and elegant and looks gorgeous on your mantel! I used all my pine cones as vase fillers this season, so it looks like I’m going to have to convince my husband to go on another foraging expedition with me. πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you SO much Celeste! How lucky that you can still grab a few more pinecones … ours are all buried in snow now. Happy foraging and thanks again!

  6. I love your tree! I had planned on making some this year and completely forgot about it until I saw your pin! I need some now! Stopping by to let you know you are being featured on Friday’s P3 Party post! Have a great holiday! Thanks for pinning!
    Best,
    Kim
