Pinecone Nativity Scene

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving and it is customary to decorate the day after, I don't feel silly posting this now. I have been wanting to make this for the longest time, but I could never find a pinecone big enough. I finally found one at Michaels, AND it smells like cinnamon!

I picked up a set of mini nativity ornaments from JoAnn's and painted them gold.


After. Nativity bling!

Next, I painted the tips of the pinecone with gold glitter.

I glued the pinecone to the "snow" and hot glued pearls from a broken necklace to the pinecone.

The snow for this is just quilt batting glued to a piece of cardboard and sprinkled with white glitter.

Once the paint dried I hot glued the nativity people in front of the tree.

This project took my only a few hours (including letting the paint dry), and it looks and smells great on my corner shelf.

Happy crafting!

  1. That is so cool. You have the neatest ideas.

  2. That is so sweet! I'm in JoAnn's at least once a week and will be looking for the mini Nativity ornaments.
    Thanks so much for sharing!
