DIY Pinecone Ornaments & My Tree

Happy Saturday!

Welcome to Day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas Event!

Today I will be sharing my super easy, and almost FREE pinecone ornaments!  Here is how they look all finished!

These took me just a few minutes a piece.  I love the mix of them with my glass ornaments… Perfect ‘rustic chic’ look in my opinion!

So… Here we go!

Yah… How easy was that??

Here are a few more pics, and a few of my whole tree!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    What a wonderful tree! Almost makes me want to put one up this year.

  • Suzanne

    I’m so proud! I actually made these! I had scented pine cones and DH was missing the real tree scent around the house. Whipped up some of these and now the are gracing our living room tree! Thanks for sharing your awesome, easy tutorial.

  • Angela Wisniewski

    I really like your tree skirt. Can you tell me if you made it or purchased it? If it was purchased..can you please share fro where? Thanks!

  • Marianne Songbird

    The addition of the bead and the ribbon makes this project totally work for me! Love the natural touches to your beautiful tree.

    Cute as always!! The bead to thread the string to hang the ornament is sheer genius! Wow! Genius!

    • Shanty2Chic

      Thanks so much Michael! :-)

  • FunkyJunk Donna

    Oh goodness… this is one of those ‘slap myself upside the head why didn’t I think of that’ moments. Genius! I was wondering how to hang them and didn’t want to over fiddle, ya know? LOVE this! Your tree is stunning!

    • Shanty2Chic

      Haha! I have lots of those moments ;-)) Thanks so much!

  • Liz

    Love what you did with the beads and ribbon. Love even more the garland — where did you get it?

    • Shanty2Chic

      The paper ribbon was a find I made in Granbury, TX in a small decorating store. I can’t find it to share online at all :-( But… You can easily make your own using cheap brown shipping paper!

  • Sandi Allen

    Love this idea for the Pine cones! Thanks for sharing!!

    • Shanty2Chic

      Thank you so much Sandi!

  • LeJean

    Do you carry the ribbon you have on your tree, would love some for my tree. I love your sight and now joining you on Pinterest! Will make some of the pinecone/s as well!

  • Kayla McCune Cheadle

    I love the Joy to the World ribbon!! Did you make that yourself? The ornaments are really cute. I have a tree out my back door with pinecone’s calling my name!

    • Shanty2Chic

      Thanks Kayla! I actually found that stuff super cheap at a decorating store! You can easily make one yourself using brown mailing paper from the store! Just more work…

  • Thistle Wood

    The simplest ideas are always the best! I have never thought of gluing a bead to a pinecone! Brilliant!

    Have a blessed and wonderful day,

    • Shanty2Chic

      Thanks so much Karianne! :-)

  • JuneA**

    You better be careful about ‘borrowing’ your pinecones….when your neighbor sees what you have done to them, she might want them back!!!! ;D Terrifically cute!

    • Shanty2Chic

      Haha! Thanks June! This made me laugh ;-))
