Have you ever made Pineapple Ornaments? Or perhaps you call them Pinecone Ornaments? I’ve seen them called by both names, and I think the only difference between the two is how you hang them. When you hang the ornament with the points facing down, it resembles a pinecone. With the points facing up, it looks somewhat like a pineapple (or an artichoke). No matter which name you use, they are a holiday classic and one of the most popular ways to make a Christmas ornament.
To make a Pineapple or Pinecone Ornament, you fold strips of fabric, ribbon, seam binding or paper into points, and then pin the points to an egg or ball of STYROFOAM brand foam. Candie Cooper demonstrates the technique on the video “5 Ornaments in 5 Minutes.” StyrofoamCrafts.com shows several styles, too, including a variation made with small cones to look like Christmas trees. So, watch the video, and then click on your favorite photo below. The photos link directly to the project instructions on StyrofoamCrafts.com.
Happy Christmas crafting!
