This craft idea came from my daughter’s December Ivy Kids box. If you haven’t heard of Ivy Kids before, I’ll be sharing more about it soon. It’s a monthly subscription box full of educational crafts and activities for preschoolers. It’s pretty awesome. My daughter and I both love it.
Pinecone Christmas Trees
For this super easy craft you’ll need:
- mini pom-poms
- white glue or glitter glue
Because of the glue, this craft can get a bit messy. You may want to put some wax paper down on your work surface before getting started.
You can get glue and mini pom-poms just about anywhere but the pinecones might be harder to come by if you don’t have any trees in your area. My daughter’s Ivy Kids box came with two large pinecones. The smaller pinecones pictured were ones we had picked up and saved from our last summer vacation.
After you’ve gathered all your supplies, you’re ready to start gluing your pom-poms to your “tree”!
Both kids really enjoyed this simple craft and happily worked on their pine cone trees for a good hour. We found that the larger pine cones worked a lot better than the smaller ones. There wasn’t really a place to snugly secure a little pom-pom on the smaller ones.
When your little pine cone trees are finished, you can display them as part of your table décor or tie a bit of string to them and hang them on your Christmas tree as ornaments! They make very pretty, creative embellishments or gifts for grandparents.
If you make these with your kids, I’d love to know how they turned out!
