Pinecone Picture-Frame Ornaments

Photos displayed in pinecone frames demand a closer look; when hung on the tree, each ornament, like a page in a scrapbook, tells a story. A single ornament -- or a set -- makes a lovely keepsake to share with family members.

Materials

  • Pinecones
  • Family photos
  • Small floral clippers
  • Craft glue
  • Card stock
  • Pencil
  • Circle template (make yourself or buy at a crafts store)
  • Decorative paper
  • Ribbon

Steps

    Glue a photograph or photocopy of a picture onto card stock. Using a template for a circle or other shape (you can make it yourself or buy one at a crafts store), outline the shape onto your photograph with a pencil; cut out. Hot-glue pinecone scales around perimeter at the back of the cutout, so the scales peek from behind the edge. Alternatively, you can glue scales onto the front of the cutout photograph. Finish the ornament with decorative paper glued to the back with a few dots of craft glue. Glue a looped length of ribbon between backing paper and photo to make a hanger.
