When I first signed on for this 12 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments series I explained it to G and he looked over at my painted pinecone place card holders and said, “Why don’t you make an ornament out of those pinecones?”
A few days later when I was lamenting over how in the world I was going to come up with 12 unique DIY ornament ideas G said, “Why don’t you make something out of those pinecones?”
On Day 6 when I was showing him my painted wood slice snowflake ornament he asked, “Have you done one with those pinecones yet?”
This one’s for you, G!
To make, I used the faux pinecones that came with our artificial Christmas tree. (You can also purchase these in store or find real ones outside.) I used a mini foam brush and white craft paint to paint the tips of the pinecone.
I haven’t used jingle bells for any of my ornaments yet, although I think they are so cute, so once the pinecones were dry, I strung a few jingle bells on baker’s twine and tied them to the tops of the painted pinecones to make an ornament.
