OK, I know what you are going to say: “Girl it’s still October! What are you doing making Christmas stuff???” Well, if it depended on me I would have started in August but I thought that would have been too much. Besides I’m part of an awesome yearly blog hop named 31 Days of Christmas Ornaments and it’s something I look forward too every year with all my heart. For this year I made these cute Rustic Flocked Pinecone Christmas Ornaments and despite the craziness I’ve been into lately I definitely LOVE how they turned out. How about you???

DIY Rustic Flocked Pinecone Christmas Ornaments

This is such an easy but so cute craft to make. It’s so incredibly easy that you can even have your kids participating and having some fun playing with paint, glue and Glitter. Oh dear glitter!!! I missed you dearly!

You can make a bunch in less than an hour for flocking and then leave them to dry while you make super cute rustic bows. Put them together and voila!


Cute Rustic Flocked Pinecone Christmas Ornament

Isn’t easy screams perfection despite the imperfection? LOL

I’m so excited about Christmas. It’s my very favourite time of the year and this year I won’t be late to start creating and inspiring you all to do the same!

So how about start making some cute Rustic Flocked Pinecone Christmas Ornaments?

Yeah, I thought so too, let’s go!

Supplies:

  • Pinecones {as many as you like}
  • White acrylic paint
  • White glue
  • White and silver glitter
  • Twine
  • Burlap or linen ribbon {color of your choice}
  • Jingle bells {2 per bow}
  • Needle and thread.
  • Hot glue gun
  • 2 bowls {big enough for the pinecones to fit}
  • Paper towels

Let’s start!!!

If you prefer reading the step by step, just keep scrolling!

First let’s make the mixtures:

In a bowl mix paint and glue, 60-40 or 50-50 will do. You don’t have to measure much just where visually seems like a good proportions.

In another bowl mix the white and the silver glitter.

Then roll pinecones around in the paint and glue mixture making sure that the cone was evenly covered from top to bottom, leaving the inner parts paint free.

Immediately after that, roll the pinecones around in the glitter mixture. Make sure you get glitter in every place where the paint is.

What I love the most about this technique is that the paint gives the pinecones a snow tipped look and then the mix of white and silver glitter gives a cute snowy, icy effect on the pinecone edges. It has a much more dense frosted appearance and I love how they look against the green from the tree.

Leave the pinecones on a paper towel to dry for a few hours. Once the glue has dried completely, tap the frosty pinecones onto the paper towel to remove any loose glitter. This still won’t prevent the whole house to be covered in glitter but at least will do less mess LOL.

While the pinecones dry, let’s work on the cute bows.

    SO pretty! I like flocked things, but have never wanted a whole flocked tree. Using some of these ornaments would be just the right touch. Thank you for the comprehensive tutorial–it makes a difference to know each step you took. Just beautiful!

    Love this ornament so much! You had me at flocking and reeled me in with how to make that outstanding bow. I have two huge bags of pinecones that are ready to get their flock on… LOL. Thanks for this amazing tutorial. Susie from The Chelsea Project
