DIY Pinecone Ornaments

This year for Christmas, I only decorated the top 2/3 of our tree…and I only wanted to use shatter-proof ornaments. Henry’s little hands move far too fast for me to be able to keep him away from the tree at all times, and I just wanted to keep him safe. So, I opted to leave all “special” ornaments in storage for this year, and just went with gold and white shatterproof ball ornaments.

But when I was finished decorating the tree, I realized that it was missing a natural element. I decided to add some pinecones, and I love the way it turned out!

I just bought two bags of pinecones (you can buy them here) and then sprayed them with a “snow” spray (which you can find here) and let them dry. After a little bit of trial and error, I figured out the easiest way to hang the pinecones was to use a very small drill bit to drill a tiny hole and then twist in a small eye hook. I then used thin bead wire to create a loop for hanging. Super-quick and easy!
