This craft makes a great holiday decorative piece that’s super easy for the kids to make.


  • Large pine cone
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Glitter
  • Sequins
  • Styrofoam square
  • Wrapping paper
  • Glue

Start with a large, tall pinecone. Cut the bottom off so it sits flat.
In containers, put out paints, glitter, and sequins.

Let your kids paint the tree, sprinkle glitter and then add sequins as ornaments. You can use rhinestones, bells, etc…whatever you have around!

We glued a felt ball on top as the tree topper.

To make my tree base, I wrapped a Styrofoam square (wood can be used too) in holiday wrapping paper (fabric can be used as well). When your tree is dry, hot glue it to the middle of the base.

As an alternative you can a tie ribbon to the top of your pinecone and hang it in your house.
