To make a pinecone Christmas decoration you will need…
- Thick ribbon
- Hot glue gun
- Thin ribbon
- 1 pine cone
- Metallic spray paint
Spray pinecone with metallic paint until well-covered. Be sure to use in a well-ventilated area and put some newspaper down, to protect any surfaces you want to keep clean. Leave to dry.
Cut 10cm of thin ribbon. Create a hanging loop by securing the two ends. Trim the excess.
Glue the knot on the loop to the base of the pinecone.
Tie a bow using the thicker ribbon. Attach the bow to the base of the pinecone to disguise the knot on the hanging loop.
Hang your pine cone Christmas decoration!
