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.
