I’ve always loved pine cones, especially during the holidays. During the fall I buy the cinnamon scented cones and place them in wicker baskets through out the house and for Christmas, we sometimes use them as ornaments. This season, I decide to give the pine cones a glittery makeover a litte early, and place them in glass bowls on our table for Thanksgiving. Then afterwards, I will hang them on our tree. See the easy to make tutorial below.

    I love hanging cinnamon apple sauce ornaments in the tree to add a spiced scent. I never thought about using cinnamon pine cones instead

    I adore this simple and easy craft! My son has been collecting pine cones for weeks and it was driving me crazy! Now this gives me an ideas to decorate them all for the tree! Plus they are sparkly-which is my fave!

    They came out very pretty! I used to make pine cone ornaments when I was a kid. I’m going to have to try this with my daughter! I’m sure she’d have a lot of fun.

    I love pine cone ornaments. I used to make them with my students every year and this post reminds me that I’ve never done it with my own kiddos. My daughter and son would have lots of fun helping decorate these. I guess we will be making some pine cone ornaments this year!
