My mother made numerous handmade Christmas ornaments and decorations when I was a child.Playing with all of the ornaments and arranging them on the tree was my favorite part of Christmas.
Twenty-five years later, my mother was attempting to persuade me that we should divide all of our childhood ornaments among myself, my brother, and sister.”You can’t split up all those old, tattered memory-filled ornaments!” was all I wanted to say.They should always be on your tree!haha… despite the fact that I have my own children, my own Christmas tree, and my mother hasn’t put up those handmade ornaments in years, I guess that sentimental attachment hasn’t disappeared.
When you were a kid, did you play with the ornaments on your Christmas tree?It was, I swear, one of my favorite Christmas activities!My goal has always been to have a Christmas tree that my children can play with.As a result, I rarely purchase designer boring sparkling balls.I also have nothing that can be broken.My tree isn’t very popular, and it probably won’t be featured in any magazines. However, I really hope that my kids will enjoy it as much as I did our tree when I was a kid!
I’m aware of this.These Christmas ornaments made of pom poms and pinecones are so simple!But what do you know?They are going to look amazing on our tree, and they turned out to be surprisingly beautiful!The best part was that my five-year-old and three-year-old could both help make them.Even for a three-year-old, they are pretty much foolproof!
Pom Poms and Pinecones Ornament Tutorial
These are super easy! And they look amazing! Here’s what you’ll need:
- Tiny pom poms
- String or ribbon
- Hot glue gun
These pom poms are really small. I got them from the dollar store and they were the perfect size to fit in the pinecones.
Start by adding a small glob of hot glue to the underside of the pinecone “branches”.
