Thanks mostly to the wide variety of shapes and sizes they come in, you can use pine cones to make loads of Christmas themed things, here are just ten of the very best ideas…
10 – Christmas Tree
They look like little fallen trees anyway, with a bit of decoration they too can become miniature Christmas trees.
9 – Wreath
Personally, I’m not a fan of Christmas wreaths as they remind me too much of funerals. But this one does look amazing.
8 – Tealight Holders
Not only good for putting on the Christmas dinner table, but also for selling at a craft fair.
7 – Garland
These decorative string style decorations will make any home feel instantly festive. But not even I can suggest placing them near an open fire.
6 – Snowmen
They look like they’re ready for the winter Olympics, but they are place placed on a flat mantlepiece rather than a ski slope.
5 – Reindeer
Rudolph the red nosed pine cone doesn’t sound like a Christmas favourite song, but it does make a cool craft item.
4 – Elves
Even Santas little helpers don’t escape the pine cone treatment. Perfect for Pinecone elf on a shelf!
3 – Hedgehog Ornaments
If you want something cute to make with pine cones these little hedgehog ornaments are the cutest things ever!
2 – Centrepiece
Not just a single pine cone used to make this tree, but loads of them! Best start collecting those pine cones.
1 – Santa
While it does require a lot more work and effort than most the craft makes here, a pine cone has the perfect shape to be a big belly Santa. I would be as big as Santa if I had to down all those glasses of milk and cookies.
