When it comes to saying Merry Christmas, nothing speaks louder than pinecones. I have so many pinecones scattered throughout my house during the Christmas Season, I really can8217;t get enough of them. When I saw this DIY Pinecone Ornament tutorial on Youtube I couldn8217;t believe how easy they were and they looked like they are quilted and loads more difficult than they actually are because they are just small styrofoam eggs from Michael8217;s Craft Store with little card stock pieces of cut paper pinned on. I started my project by laying out the materials I was going to use for my DIY Paper Christmas Pinecones and luckily I had a few styrofoam eggs leftover from Easter and of course, I always have card stock and pins so I was ready to go. I first cut all my small pieces of card stock then folded the top in a sort of pointy triangle shape so the piece resembled a house shape, square at the bottom and pointy at the roof part.
These simple DIY Pinecone Christmas Ornaments turned out better than I even imagined! The more I made the more I wanted to make, so when the kids got home from school they were totally eager to grab a styrofoam egg and a pair of scissors and join in. This is definitely the kind of project you can involve the whole family in, we loved it!
