Mini Pine Cone Wreath

I went for a walk the other day. Yes, I have been known to wear pretty necklaces when I go for a walk.

Fitness for Mums -- walking

As I walked, I collected a few items in my hat. I love collecting things and then challenging myself to create something with the items.

Below is one of the decorations the kids and I made with my collection.


Small pine cones or any other of a similar size (gems, buttons, pipecleaners, pebbles, pom poms, cellophane, paper scraps, sequence)

Craft Glue



Simply glue the pine cones on the curtain ring and attach ribbon to hang.


  • Napkin holders
  • Tree decoration
  • Above table decorations
  • Gift for teachers, grandparents friends
  • School holiday activity (go on a nature hunt to collect seed pods and then do the craft at home)

    My mom used to make ornaments when we were younger with those same pinecones. Is there a chance you may know the name or type of tree they come from? any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Kelly,
    good to hear from you!
    This looks like a Casuarina species to me. Just google Casuarina to see the wiki entry and have quick look at it.
    Have a great festive season!
