christmas ornament tutorial

Pine Cones Christmas Ornaments

Christmas is near and I made a DIY tutorial for these cute ornaments. This is a great tutorial for kids to make on a weekend before Christmas. You can hang the ornaments in the Christmas tree or put them in the window for decoration.

See my also my Felted Beads Tutorial on making your own felted beads or bobbles, which are used in this tutorial. Another option would be to buy small felt balls in a craft store.

Below is a list for all the materials I used. If you choose to make only one or two of the ornaments you will of course need less materials.


  • Pine Cones
  • Felted beads/bobbles made with the above mentioned tutorial
  • Wool roving or carded wool in white, green, orange, pink and red
  • Glimmer/glitter  in silver and red
  • Doll hair
  • White paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glue
  • Sprayglue
  • Felt fabric in red, white, offwhite and light blue
  • Scissors
  • Pen


See image on top of this blog post. Felt a white bead and an orange nose with the wool roving. Glue the nose to the head.  With a pen draw the eyes and the mouth. Paint the pine cone with white paint. (I only did the outer petals). Cut out a small scarf in light blue felt fabric. Glue the scarf, so it folds around the snowman’s neck. For the hat cut out a circle and two narrow rectangles. Glue the rectangles to the circle  to make a hat. Cut 2 white mittens in felted fabric. Glue the head on top of the pine cone.

Sprayglue the pine cone and put red glimmer on it. Make a felted, white bead. Draw mouth and eyes on the bead with a pen. For the hat cut out a circle. Cut out about a 1/8 slice, so the hat gets easier to fold. Then fold and glue the hat. Cut out tiny, white dots and glue them onto the hat. Glue the head on top of the pine cone.

You can paint the Christmas tree or make an ‘organic’ version without paint. The green version is painted with white paint and immediately after sprinkled with silver glimmer. Glue the small felted beads/bobbles under the petals.
