DIY Christmas Centerpiece Made With Pine Cones

Homemade Christmas decorations are special in so many ways: you have fun engaging in the creative process; you add your personal touch to the finished product; you use materials that have been lingering too long in your craft box! This Christmas centerpiece made with pine cones is an easy activity the whole family can enjoy.

Create a Christmas centerpiece with the kids. Use materials you have on hand, especially from decorations you no longer use. We salvaged some greenery from a small artificial tree. You can also find materials online and in craft or dollar stores.

Layer pine cones, greenery, and ornaments in the basket until you are happy with the result. This may take a few tries!

The basket and decorations you choose will help determine the color scheme. Mix and match a variety of colors and textures depending on the materials you have available.
