Christmas Crafts Glitter Pine Cones Tutorial

This is such a simple and fun Christmas craft activity. Collect pine cones from your garden or in my case my sisters garden dot with a little glue, some coloured glitter and just 10 minutes later some fun and sparkly Christmas decorations. If you do not have a pine tree to hand you can find nets of pine cones for sale in your local craft store or online.

  • Clear some space on a table.  
  • Make sure your pine cones are clean and dry if from your garden.
  • Pour some glue into a dish.
  • Using a brush dab the glue onto the ends of the pine cone.
  • Open the lid to your glitter, and carefully sprinkle your chosen colour over the glued areas on the pine cone. 
  • Place the pine cone to one side to dry.
  • Continue on with your next cone if you are using the same colour glitter.
  • Carefully pour the excess glitter back into the pot. 
I used pink glitter to match my craft room and have the cones lined up on my window sill. They look fun and funky for Christmas.

You can use these pretty glittery pine cones to decorate your tree, tie a a piece of ribbon around them. Or use them in a glass bowl placed on a side board or table.
