DIY Pine Cone Ornaments – Christmas Decorating on a Budget- Part 4!

These DIY Pine Cone Ornaments are simple and very budget friendly.  This ornament #4 from My Christmas Decorating on a Budget Series.  Christmas Decorating on a Budget Series -

I like to change my Christmas decor around and I find myself getting tired of colors and like to switch things around. I do have a few sentimental items that are staples in my Christmas decorating, but for the most part, I don’t hold onto items over long periods of time.  This can get costly to change-up colors every year, so I decided to share some ideas of decorating on a budget by repurposing what you have or making your own holiday decor.  This post contains some affiliate links.

I think I have a small pine cone obsession.  I have bags and baskets full of pine cones.  I love to use them in my everyday decorating and especially my Fall and Winter decorating.  I love having natural elements in my decor and this is the cheapest one yet.  I go out a collect them off the ground.  Every time I see a good one lying on the ground, I pick it up and bring it home.

Step 1:  Hot glue the pine cones to a round piece of cardboard.

Step 2:  Spray paint the pine cones.  I used Platinum Silver and Champagne Rustoleum Metallic Spray Paint.

Step 3: Hot glue on a small pine cone in the center of the star pine cones.  If you don’t have a small one, you can cut off the top of a large one and use just the tip.

The cost of these pine cone ornaments is $0.  I had all of the supplies on hand and, of course, I found the pine cone on the ground.   I found these glitter pine cones from World Market for $13.98.  So the cost of these would be 1.16 each and my DIY pine cones are $0.  Mine are much prettier!
