DIY mini Christmas tree

We collected a bag of pinecones last year when we were at Cameron Highlands.

We made a few DIY crafts with our pinecones – a little girl and also hedgehogs.


This December holiday, we decided to make some Christmas trees using them.


Items we used :

  • Pinecones
  • Acrylic paints – yellow and green
  • Glitter glue
  • Palette
  • Brushes
  • Glittering sprinkles
  • Beads
  • Paper cupcake holders


1. Mix the blue and yellow acrylic paints to get green colour. I also add glitter glue to the green paint so that Dot and I can stick the sparkling glitters onto our mini trees.

2. Paint the pinecones and then add some beads and glitters bits onto the not-yet-dried pinecones.

3. To hold the pinecones in an upright position to dry properly, I cut a hole in the paper cupcakes and place the pinecones on the holes. The cupcake holders can also be used as stands for the pinecones.
