Potted Pinecone Christmas Trees Craft

Residents can immerse themselves in the holiday spirit by creating their own Potted Pinecone Christmas Trees. Start by having residents paint a pinecone green and decorate it with sequins and glitter. Afterward, they can attach a yellow cardstock star to the top and securely fasten the pinecone in a mini flower pot using hot glue. For an extra festive touch, battery-operated lights can be wrapped around the pinecone, creating a warm and twinkling ambiance. This engaging project allows residents to personalize their living spaces with handmade charm, fostering a sense of accomplishment and holiday joy.
