Over the weekend my boyfriend and I went on a hike – ahh, the great outdoors. In nature we came upon a lot of pinecone trees and made me want to get home and gather some pinecones from my own tree for crafting.Here are some very easy to do (no stress here!) pinecone ornament ideas. A lot of these can totally be customized to suit your style.
This pom pom pinecone ornament idea by One Little Project was perfect for me. I had a bag of pom poms that were sitting on my desk with no use coming to mind. It took a few minutes to glue down the pom poms and a ribbon for hanging. Easy peasy!

If you do not have a tree up because you have naughty cats, take your pinecones back outside and make bird feeders using the how-to on The Spruce blog. Bonus: hang these in trees with a view for your cats to watch bird TV from indoors!
