Here are several pine cone Christmas decorations that you can do with your kids and other family household members. Spend an afternoon or two making them, and turn this project into a bonding activity. Serve snacks to the mix for a festive air. You know us, Pinoys…we love to eat.

DIY Dave and his assistant Eric show in the video tutorial how you can make these decors. I’d consider these projects to have a difficulty rating of 1 or 2 since they’re fairly easy to do.

It would be great if you live close to pine trees so you can take the opportunity to be out in nature when you pick up pine cones from the ground. If you get your pine cones this way and did not buy them from a store, I suggest that you put them in the oven first to get rid of moisture and any bugs before you use them for your crafts. Place your cones on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Turn on the oven (don’t pre-heat the oven) at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. Then dry them under the sun for an additional 10 minutes. If you have no oven, just dry them under the sun for 30-40 minutes.

Christmas Reindeers

Don’t underestimate the power of googly eyes and red pom poms. These Christmas reindeers make for fun baubles on your Christmas tree. Or you can hang them on a string and use them as garlands on your walls.

To up the DIY factor, you can also make your own pom poms.

Pine Cone Trees

I love the green paint used for these pine cone trees. Choose Boysen Healthy Home BCP-0767 Golf Day to get this exact color.

When you display them, group them for more impact. You can even use them as decor for your table arrangements for noche buena on December 24 or media noche on December 31. Don’t forget the 12 round fruits on New Year’s Eve.

Pine Cone Tree Snow Globe

There are three things you can do to make sure your pine cone tree snow globe would work well.

  • First, choose a waterproof glue to ensure that your pine cone tree sticks to the cover of the mason jar.
  • Second, add a dash of glycerin (not too much) so that glitter floats and does not fall quickly to the bottom.
  • Third, use distilled water.
  • Fourth, don’t put your snow globe under sunlight to avoid the evaporation of the water inside the jar.

This pine cone tree snow globe can last for a long time. But if it doesn’t, it’s quite easy to disassemble and put in new cones for the next Christmases.
