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. 

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 for the front door.

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

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.

You'll find a post on our Pine Cones Pinterest board that explains how to clean pine cones when you bring them in from outdoors.

  • pine cones
  • hanger
  • greenery
  • glue gun
  • burlap

 Remove the hanger from a hanging planter.

  • I often remove the hanger when I purchase a planter and set the flowering plant pot into a larger deck planter.
  • I add gravel to the large planter pot to stabilize it and set the flowering plant on top.


Burlap is a popular fabric for crafts because it has natural appeal and can be shaped and cut and glued and more! It is available online or in craft or sewing stores.

Now that you have all the requirements, follow the easy 3 steps below to make your unique pine cone and burlap hanging decoration.

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 help secure it to the hanger.

This is the back view of the hanger, after a few pine cones were glued in place on the other side.

2. Glue a burlap bow to the hanger.

Follow this simple tutorial to make a burlap bow. The bow is made without any gluing or sewing!

Attach the burlap bow near the top of the hanger with the glue gun. 

This is the front view of the decoration.

3. Add some color. 


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!
