DIY Decor in Minutes: Pine Cone Spheres
This decorative project takes very little time but it’s surprising how many uses you may find for them! I make up some smaller and larger pine cone spheres to decorate a holiday mantle, but they also make great table decor, tree ornaments, and winter dressing for windows and shelves. You could even use some of the smaller ones to decorate holiday gifts or set them outdoors in your holiday planters.
These pine cone balls are festive for sure, but I don’t think they scream Christmas and have great longevity to dress up your home or garden for the fall and winter months.
- various sized foam spheres
- various sized pine cones, dry and open
- twine (optional)
- stapler (optional)
- hot glue gun & glue
Collect pine cones of different sizes and set out to dry. They are dry when they open up and are not at all cool to the touch.
If you plan to hang the spheres then use then staple a loop of twine onto the foam before the next step.
Use a hot glue gun to affix the base of each pine cone to the sphere, starting with the largest pine cones and adding in smaller pine cones to fill in the gaps.
When dry, display your pine cone spheres indoors or out in any way that you choose!
