How to make Rhinestone Pinecones
This post gives directions for helping little one’s make these as a fine motor craftivity. When I offer fine motor activities and crafts to my daughter, I like to give her something to make that we will actually use.
Rhinestone pinecones fit this bill perfectly. Once finished, they can then be made into Christmas ornaments or garlands, and look beautiful in bowls as rustic Christmas home decor.
The self-adhesive rhinestones are small and can be a choking hazard to the little ones. Make sure your child is mature enough to handle small parts before offering this activity.
Rhinestone Pinecone Materials
- Pinecones (find these in nature or purchase Ponderosa Pine Cones)
- Multicolor sheet Rhinestone Gem self-adhesive stickers or Multicolor Rhinestone Sticker Sheet
- Glue Gun (optional for adults)
Rhinestone Pinecone Directions
Please note that these rhinestone stickers can fall off. If you would like them to stay put for good use a glue gun or craft glue. Using a glue gun is not recommended for kids unless able to handle one safely under direct supervision. Glue guns are hot and dangerous tools.
You can offer this activity to your children so they can practice their fine motor skills and glue them on later if desired. They don’t have to know that you “fixed” them. 😉
- Place pinecones and rhinestone stickers on a work surface.
- Invite child to stick rhinestones onto the scales of the pinecone.
Rhinestone pinecones are a simple fine motor craft for both kids and adults. Fine motor activities help prepare a child’s hand for writing and more detailed hand work.
There are so many things you can do with these rhinestone pinecones once done. You can make them into ornaments, use them to make a pinecone garland, place them on nature tables, display them around the home, or give them as gifts. Enjoy!
