DIY Pine Cone Christmas Balls

DIY Pinecone Christmas Balls: Easy to make and beautiful.  Made with simple pinecones glued to styrofoam balls.  Perfect for Christmas.

I was recently on a Christmas tour of homes, and one of the houses had some pretty pine cone balls. I thought they’d work really well with our winter woodland theme this Christmas and decided to make some. The hardest part was finding small pine cones -actually they’re spruce cones. After driving around a few neighbourhoods, I managed to find and collect some. I didn’t even have to wear all black. šŸ˜‰ Along with lots and lots of little spruce cones, I used three different sized large styrofoam balls from the dollar store, and lots and lots and lots of hot glue.

After I collected the pinecones I left them near a register for a few days and they opened up quite a bit. Then I just glued them onto the styrofoam ball, as close together as possible, and varying the directions they went in to try and make it look random. Then, a sprayed them very, very lightly with a little silver spray paint, to just add a little sheen. Then I added some glue and glitter in just a few small spots.

I love all their rustic texture, and the little hit of silver and glitter to add a little Christmas magic.

I added the balls and some greens to my console table. They’re nested beside my vintage typewriter.
