Mini Christmas Tree


Updated October 24, 2013

Use a tiny clay pot and a pine cone to create a miniature Christmas tree. Paint and add your own embellishments to decorate this pine cone Christmas tree.  Great to use as a gift embellishment or ornament, this adorable Mini Christmas Tree is also a great project for kids and school groups.  Add your own personal touch to the tree by writing a name on the pot!  This is one fun craft that you can embellish and personalize any number of ways!

Mini Christmas Tree


  • Very small terra cotta pot
  • Pine cone
  • Elmer's school glue
  • Paint (whatever colors you want for your tree and pot)
  • Glitter, beads, sequins, whatever you want to decorate your tree with
  • Toothpick
  • Paintbrush



  1. First, paint your little pot whatever color you would like it to be. I went with red.

  3. Use the toothpick to add small dots of glue to the pine cone and then apply your "decorations."

Why would you paint a pinecone? It looks horrible.

I would use hot glue if the pine cone doesn't just stay in the pot (sometimes they just fit perfectly!).

You did not say anything about the pine cone holding onto the pot. Glue it ?? Or what ??

Was there a respomse? Use hot glue?
