Are you looking for last minute Christmas decor?
Well then do I have a treat for you today.
See in the recent weeks the last of Fall season has left us with some pinecones here. My girls love to collect them. However I never know what to do with them. But then I got an idea.
I mean it technically is still Fall, but the holidays, specifically Christmas is just about upon us.
So, Christmas decorating and crafting is in full swing here.
I decided to try my hand at a fun and easy Christmas decor craft by using pinecones.
But I also used inexpensive twine, ornaments, clothespins and more.
What I came up with is a rustic pinecones garland decor craft that truly came out better than I could have ever imagined.

Rustic Pinecones Garland
Materials for Rustic Pinecones Garland:
- Silver glitter paint
- Hot glue gun
- Red ribbon
- Small holiday themed clothespins
- Rope or twine
- Rustic holiday ornaments (optional)
Instructions for Rustic Pinecones Garland:
- Begin by holding your pinecone upside down by the tip and painting the edges of the pinecone with silver glitter paint. Lay the pinecones down gently on a protected surface and allow them to dry completely.
- Once dry, cut a small loop of red ribbon (we used burlap), and glue it to the bottom of the pinecone, which will actually be the part that faces up on the garland. There is usually a small notch there that you can glue the ribbon to. You can see the photo for reference on how to do this.
- Cut a length of twine or rope that is as long as you would like your garland to be.
- Alternate hanging the painted pinecones along the length of the rope or twine with small holiday themed clothespins. If you cannot find the clothespins, you can make your own out of regular sized clothespins, or simply hot glue the pinecones directly to the rope or twine by its ribbon hanger.
- You can boost the rustic look of your pinecone garland by alternating other inexpensive rustic holiday ornaments among the pinecones on the garland. The ones used here were found at the Dollar Tree.
There you have an easy decor craft with my rustic pinecones garland. Happy Decorating now!

You are so creative! I love this pinecone garland. It is extremely cute! It would look good around a fireplace mantle.
This would also be a great craft for my teenager daughter. I cannot wait to show it to her.

I love this and actually picked up those words at my dollar store last year and made a shadow box with them. I have yet to do any crafts for the holidays and doubt I’ll be making anything now, but may do this for the new year. 🙂
Aw, I hope you can try for the New Year now 😉
This is adorable Janine! I totally just pinned it 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much Jen and pinning, too 🙂
Inexpensively is the only way we decorate! Unless you count our tree.. which is insane. I love the rustic and easy crafts.
Me too as you can tell. Oh and your tree is awesome!!!!! 🙂
Anything to do with pine cones I always love to work with. Those holiday clothes pins are so cute, perfect for this project. Your banner is really cute, nice to have hanging around anywhere in your home.
The only way I craft is with home made and $ store items, we live on SS in Grand Junction, CO area. Makes it more of a challenge to figure out how to produce well made projects on a dime store budget, lol. Makes it more fun when projects turn out nicely.
Wishing you and yours a very MERRY CHRISTMAS
Aw, thanks JaneEllen and wishing you a very, Merry Christmas now, too!! 🙂
