Pine Cone Flower Refrigerator Magnets

By: Michelle Franscella from
Pine Cone Flower Refrigerator Magnets

"These adorable refrigerator magnets are made from pine cones. All you need is some paint, a few magnets, some glue, and of course, pine cones. This is a great craft project for kids!"

Primary TechniqueGeneral Crafts



Materials List

  • pine cones
  • paint
  • glue
  • magnets


  1. Pinch a few rows of scales at the top of the pinecone as shown below. Holding the pinecone loosely so you dont break the lower scales off, cut the upper scales off with wire cutters. Pull any excess material off with needle nose pliers.

  2. Now that you have the top half of the pine cone cut off, there are two different kinds of flowers you can make with the result. If you want a daisy, put the pine cone right side up; if you want a zinnia, put the pine cone wrong side up.

  3. Paint the pine cones!

  4. Let the paint dry, then glue the magnets on the back.

  5. Let the glue dry, then slap those cute little suckers on your fridge and enjoy!

I was wrong about an earlier post, this is the ultimate up-cycle project! We live in the south and you can not throw and rock without hitting a pine cone. This would be a great project to complete with the kids at summer camp!

I just have to try to make a few of these just because they are so novel. The materials are practically free and what other plans do I have for those pesky pine cones? Right now, I think I have everything I need to complete this so I know what my next "quickie" project will be.

With tons of pinecones in the yard, this would be such a cost effective project! For some sheen I would cover in clear nail polish or decoupage or for sparkle, some glitter glue would make a pretty option. For centers you could add a seed bead or tiny button, or even polymer clay created centers. This would make a cool classroom project and cute favor for a party or little gifts. And useful, since it is a magnet!

These pine cone flower magnets are so super cute. What a great idea for a craft day with the kids or for school or day camp project. I am sure the kids would love to paint and decorate these. They look like real flowers but will not wilt. Boys or girls would enjoy this. Will be on my summer project list for sure. Do I need to use something to preserve them so they do not fall apart?
