Finished Pine Cone Christmas Tree Ornament craft for kids

My girls love getting crafty with me. Since we live in a forest, I love making nature crafts using things from our yard… like pine cones.

These Mini Pinecone Christmas Ornaments are one of the fun ideas we came up with for using the pine cones that fill our yard every year.

It’s a super easy Christmas craft for kids. It’s quick to make, so they don’t have to sit still for long.

If you don’t have local access to pine cones, you can purchase pine cones online that are specifically for crafting. The bonus is you won’t end up with a ton of sap on your hands like we get from fresh, unprepared pine cones.
