Mini Christmas Tree



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!).
