DIY Christmas Trees

I love when a project turns out exactly the way I pictured it in my head! Isn’t it just lovely when it happens that way?

That’s just what happened with these little trees. They came out perfectly.

And even better? They were practically free! And they weren’t even that much work!

The kids and I rounded up fallen pinecones from the yard, I made construction paper cones with paper we already owned, and then I went to work with the glue gun.

This DIY even got a thumbs up from my husband, who sighs in quiet despair every time I get my glue gun out. And that’s really saying something!

DIY Pinecone Christmas Tree

First I twisted a piece of construction paper into a cone shape, using a dark color so nothing in the background would show through. You may have to trim the bottom a little so it sits flat on your surface.

Beginning at the bottom, I glued the pinecones in layers around the cone, layering up as I went around the cone.

After finishing the first one, I went on to make two more in smaller sizes, since I always like to do things in odd numbers.

And here’s the finished product! Super easy to do.
