Crafts made with natural materials are perfect for indoor or outdoor decorating. We love adding pine cones to a table centerpiece or making pine cone ornaments to complement a holiday wreath.

We even use them in the sandbox for kids sensory play!

This pine cone ornament is paired with a burlap bow to give it a rustic country look. It's easy to make with upcycled materials and a glue gun.

Christmas decorating often includes pine cones at our house. We have a steady supply of pine cones available around our pine tree. But even if you don't have supplies available in nature, you can easily complete this project with options we provide in the tutorial. 

Pine cones are durable, easy to work with, and come in a variety of sizes and colors. They are available to purchase online or in craft stores.

Follow the easy steps below to make your unique pine cone and burlap hanging decoration.




 Make a decorative pine cone craft with a plant hanger


  • pine cones
  • hanging planter
  • greenery
  • glue gun
  • burlap

 Remove the hanger from a hanging planter.

  • I often remove the hanger that comes on a flowering planter pot from the garden center and simply set the pot into a larger deck planter. I add gravel to the deck planter to stabilize it, then set the flowering plant on top.

Burlap can be purchased online, and is also available in craft or sewing stores. It has natural appeal and can be easily shaped and glued.

1. Glue the pine cones to the hanger.

Apply a bead of glue along the narrow strip of plastic with a glue gun.

Press and hold each pine cone in place for a few seconds to secure to the hanger.

3. Add colorful accessories. 


Glue a sprig of greenery and some berries to the decoration.

  • We have a yew tree that always needs trimming so I was happy to snip a few little branches with red berries attached.

It's the perfect finishing touch to this Christmas decoration!
