Handmade Christmas Pine Cone Ornament
As promised, I have a new ornament to share with you. I have seen these made with fabric and thought I wonder how it would look made from Stampin’ Up Designer Series Paper? So I tried it, and my hubby and I love how they turned out.
It only used less than 1 full 12″ x 12″ sheet of designer series paper. It was super fun and super easy to pull together.
Let me tell you a funny story before I proceed. I actually had these ready a couple of weeks ago. One night hubby and I went to dinner (I had just finished these and left them on my table next to my recliner), when we came home, this is what I found!! Why in the world my Chiwinnie would “ever” think these were something edible is beyond me! There is obviously no taste or smell to these, or at least nothing I think she would eat, but alas she did! Bad Sophie!! Really though, look at that face, I just couldn’t be upset with her. I know she didn’t know what she was doing. I tell you, each ornament had about 200 pins in it, we kept an eye on her and prayed she hadn’t swallowed anything, so far she’s good.
I used the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper for these two ornaments. Cut them into 1″ strips, then again into 1″ squares. Folded them to create a point at the top, then starting from the bottom adhered each square to my cone. I also purchased some egg-shaped styrofoam balls and some fine tip dressmaker pins. Let me know if a tutorial will help.
On this ornament in addition to using the Joyous Noel DSP, I used the Tranquil Tide 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon to create the bow and hanger on top. You can probably use some store bought greenery as well.
Here is the second ornament, on this one I used the gorgeous Merry Merlot & Copper Ribbon. Super easy to tie and one side is coppery and the other side is the merlot color only.
I hope I have inspired you to go create something beautiful and share it with someone. I plan to make several more of these and give them away. One of them I will give away here on my blog, so be sure and come back to visit.
