What is better than creating decorative items straight from nature? Natural items, like pinecones, are already beautiful which makes them perfect for incorporating into holiday decor. In fact, there are so many Christmas decorations that you can make with pinecones. From garland to wreaths to even pinecone trees, there are many creative ideas. However, today I will be focusing on ornaments. This collection of DIY pinecone ornaments is full of festive creativity.
Unique DIY Pinecone Ornaments
There are plenty of simple ways to simply hang pinecones on the Christmas tree. For hanging, use twine or ribbon attached to the top of the pinecones. Natural pinecones look great hanging from festive ribbon. However, you can also decorate the pinecones with paint or glitter for some added style. To get even more creative, the following ideas provide some great inspiration.

Create A Pinecone Trio Ornament
String a few pinecones togethe,r with a festive bell, for a creative ornament for the tree. The added white paint gives the pinecones a definite rustic chic look. If you want to add a bit of color, use red velvet ribbon instead of the twine for stringing.
Birch And Pinecone Flower Ornament
I have made pinecone flowers using the cone petals and a small round slab of wood. Instead of inserting a branch into the bottom of the flower as a stem, just drill a hole at the top of the wood slab. Then thread a festive ribbon through the hole and hang it on the tree.
