Silver Pinecone Christmas Ornament

Pinecone ornaments are beautiful and easy to make.  We chose a silver and white color scheme for this ornament, but you could use other colors to match your own color scheme.  This ornament is easy enough to make with children.  They will enjoy collecting and painting the pinecones.   

You will need:

A pinecone

Silver paint and a brush

Silver glitter

White ribbon

Silver ribbon

A glue gun

Step 1.  Paint the pinecone.

Brush silver paint onto the tips of the pinecone.

Step 2.  Add the glitter.

Sprinkle on the glitter while the paint is still wet.  Let the ornament dry.  If you are worried about the glitter brushing off, which is often does, spray the pinecone with a light coat of sealer.
