fall craft idea using pine cones

this craft is great for little helpers. so gather your littles and let’s get started!

SUPPLIES: pine cones, hot glue gun, ribbon, frame, and GlueGlider Pro+ {optional}.

i used the yummy cinnamon scented pine cones from the store BUT you can totally go out in your backyard and gather pine cones from the ground. {this is where your little helpers come in handy!} that is, if you’re lucky enough to live close to a pine tree…..which i am not so lucky.

winter craft idea

1. with your frame on the floor, arrange your pine cones and stagger the height. use an odd number of pine cones {i used 7} so that it is visibly pleasing.

2. roughly measure how much ribbon you’ll need to reach the frame and then add 2″. cut a piece of ribbon for each pine cone.

3. hot glue one end of each strip of ribbon to a pine cone.

4. flip frame over so that the back of the frame is up. make sure all pine cones are in place and place the ribbon under the frame. {so that the ribbon is against the “right” side of the frame}

5. then with your GlueGlider Pro+, run a small strip of adhesive along the back of the frame where each end of the ribbon wraps around. note: you could also use a hot glue gun for this. i chose to use the GlueGlider for a flat adhesive so that it laid flush with the wall.

6. fold the ribbon ends over the adhesive and you’re done!

    Oh, there are too many crafts to list! But I’ve got some work to do to my 2-year-old’s baby book and this would be perfect for attaching pictures of momentous events!

    What a clever project and different way to decorate for the season.
    Did you know if you soak pine cones in water they will close up and as they dry out they’ll open again? When my son was little we played with this “science project” on the kitchen cabinet, but it would be so much cooler to see it hanging on the wall.
    Now I need to go to the park and pick up some pine cones!
