My mother and I decided to do a fun holiday craft together. We both like to drink wine, so we have plenty of wine corks laying around. And we wanted to put them to good use by making a craft out of them. We thought these Pinecone Christmas trees would be adorable to make using the wine corks as the tree trunks. Even my sons joined in on the crafting and made a few, as well.
Difficulty: ❤♡♡♡ Easy
- Start by gathering your supplies and laying down some newspaper or a drop cloth over your work area. We will be painting a lot of items that may tilt and roll so this will keep a clean work area.
- Cut your wine corks in half so your tree trunk won’t be quite so tall.
- Paint the top and edge of the pinecone scales green.
- (Optional) Paint the edges of the pinecone scales white like snow.
- Paint wooden stars yellow or leave unpainted for a more natural look.
- Glue star to the top of the pinecone with glue gun.
- Glue half of wine cork to the bottom of the pinecone to make a tree trunk. You may need to remove a bit of the pinecone’s actual stem to have a more even surface.
- Enjoy your newly created pinecone Christmas tree!
