DIY: Pinecone Christmas Trees (or not)

diypineconechristmastrees

Hi! Today I’ll be showing you how to make some cute and easy pinecone Christmas trees.

———————

step1

Gather some pinecones from your yard or any place where there are pine trees. The pinecones should be pretty large and well-rounded, with no broken or smashed parts. You can also gather a few small sticks, which you’ll be using later to make little Christmas tree stands.

step2

Collect sequins, glitter, stickers, buttons, beads, strips of fabric, pipe cleaners, bits of tinsel, and anything else you might want to decorate your trees with. Set these aside.

step3

Bring your pinecones inside. Be careful to make sure they don’t have any bugs on them. Then, rinse them thoroughly in the sink or tub with cold water, being careful not to break any. Set the pinecones on a towel in an open place to air-dry. This could take a while, so be patient!

step4

Once they’re dry, coat your pinecones with Mod Podge or a similar clear drying glue in a well ventilated area. While they’re still wet, sprinkle colorful glitter, tiny pieces of paper, or sequins over the pinecones, making sure they get stuck to the Mod Podge. Set them aside and allow the Mod Podge to completely dry.

step5

Completely and totally forget about this project and, to your utter confusion, discover a large heap of glittery pinecones in the corner of your bedroom approximately 2-4 weeks after Christmas.

step6

Throw out the pinecones, laugh, and have much more fun writing a (hopefully) amusing blog post instead.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who forgets about craft projects, discovers them much later, and has no idea what they are. XD

I hope you enjoyed this post! It was rather fun to write. 😛

Oh, there’s one more thing before I go….

  1. This post was so funny! Hilarious Clara! I made sugar cookies for my dolls with the mini cookie cutters, and put them on my highest shelf so that nobody would eat them during X-mas!
    Well, they ended up never being used because 2 weeks later I was lying in my bed and went, “huh, what’s up there?”
    Long story short, I found my sugar cookies! XD!

  3. Haha, that probably wouldn’t ever happen to me because I don’t really have a place in my room to put something like that and forget about it-my room is pretty stuffed full with things. 😛 What’s also funny is that actually a long time ago I made pinecone Christmas trees for my sisters’ dollhouses one year for Christmas. We still have them, and I like them a lot. 🙂 Were your pinecone Christmas trees meant to be decorations in your room?

  4. HAHA! That’s funny! I’m not sure if I’ve forgotten about craft projects, but I often have trouble finishing projects, which may lead to forgetting them 😛 . Super Congratulations on 200 followers!!!

  5. Haha, very funny. XD I don’t know that I’ve necessarily forgotten about a project in that way, but sometimes I like to look through my old pictures or something that I’ve kind of forgotten about. Also, CONGRATULATIONS on 200 followers! That is sooo exciting!
