The best part of Christmas is family, nothing is better than being together with all your loved ones. One fun way that you can spend this time is by creating fun crafts together! We at Natures Garden have created a holiday recipe that is easy and fun for the whole family. While parent supervision is necessary for the glue gun, the Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe is a simple recipe that kids can help make, too.

When I was younger, my grandma would have each of her grandchildren make and sign an ornament for her Christmas Tree. It was one of my favorite parts of the holidays. Not only is this ornament easy enough for kids, but this elegant, rustic design is perfect for decorating a unique and gorgeous Christmas tree. Plus, you can all enjoy decorating the tree after the pine cone ornaments are complete. Regardless of how you spend your holidays this year, this simple and lovely ornament is perfect for decorating and bringing the family together!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Gathering Your Pinecones

Of course, you can try to find some unscented, decorative pine cones at a store. But, it would certainly be more fun to go out and gather this part of the craft on your own. This way you have the chance to find the perfect pine cone for your ornament. This idea is especially great for kids that want to create this craft. Not only is this idea fun for kids, but it can certainly save you money from overpriced, decorative pine cones. That’s one of the beautiful things about creating pine cone ornaments, you can use the same pine cones from your yard!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Preparing the Work Area

After you have gathered all of your ingredients you can start preparing your work station. All you are going to need is a clean, flat area to create your ornament, but you are going to want to lay down something to catch the mess. So, grab either some wax paper or an old newspaper to cover your counter top. You are going to want to lay this down over your work area before you get started. This will protect the counter top from the glue and the fragrance oil. Another bonus is that laying this down will make clean up so much easier. So, you are not going to want to skip this step.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Creating the Scented Pinecone

We are going to start off by creating the pine cone portion of this recipe. Not only will this pretty pine cone ornament use the gold glitter, but this part of the holiday craft will be scented with the perfect Christmas scent, Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil. It is a wonderful blend of pine, apples and cinnamon, bayberry, holly, and a hint of vanilla. So, let’s get started!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Measuring the Liquid GluePinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Measuring the Liquid Glue

Now, we are ready to begin creating these simple Christmas ornaments. You are going to want to begin by measuring the liquid craft glue. We chose to use Elmer’s glue in our project, but any liquid craft glue that dries clear will be perfect! So, portion out about an ounce of glue into a small, glass bowl. This amount may vary slightly depending on the size of both your pine cones and plastic Easter eggs, but this is a good amount to start off with. If you happen to run out before you finish your pine cones, then you can make more later. 

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding the Fragrance OilPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Adding the Fragrance Oil

Next, you are going to be adding in the wonderful fragrance oil. We chose to use our original Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil because it is a strong scent that is perfect for Christmas time. Plus, this aroma is amazing for creating homemade room scents, as it is a strong aroma. So, grab this fragrance oil and the ounce of liquid glue. You are going to add about 1-2 mL of Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil to the glue, which you can measure using a disposable pipette. Then, mix thoroughly to incorporate the scent into the glue.

Now, you are going to take your pine cones and coat the whole thing in the Sleigh Ride scented glue mixture! Although only the edges will have glitter added, you can use the glue everywhere to create a stronger scent for your home this season! The more your add, the stronger the fragrance will be in your home. Just make sure that you create enough to coat the edges and remember that you can mix up more scented glue as you need it. After your pine cone has been covered well, you are ready to move on to the next step of adding the glitter.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Rolling in the GlitterPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Rolling in the Glitter

After your liquid glue has dried we are ready for the glitter! Just sprinkle an amount of this gorgeous gold glitter on your protected work area and roll your pine cones in it. The goal for this method is to cover the outer edges of the pine cone and add some lovely shimmer. Although we did add glue to places that don’t have glitter, we didn’t necessarily waste any of the glue. This scented glue will dry clear and add to the aroma of the overall recipe. So, the extra glue will create a stronger room scenting product for your Christmas Tree!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Preparing the Plastic Easter Eggs

Now, you are ready for the second part of this lovely Christmas craft! While the freshly glittered and scented pine cones are drying, you can prepare the other half of this diy Christmas ornament. You will need to take the smaller halves of the plastic Easter eggs and completely cover them with gold glitter!

Now, you are going to get the plastic Easter eggs ready for the ornament. You are only going to be using the smaller halves of the plastic eggs for these diy pine cone christmas tree ornaments. So, take these halves of the plastic eggs and cover them in unscented glue. You can wipe out and re-add the liquid glue to the same small bowl. Then, just roll or brush the glue onto each of the plastic eggs. After, set these plastic eggs some where that they can be sprinkled with glitter without making a big mess, we chose to use a large glass bowl.

Next, you are going to add the gold craft glitter. Make sure that you move fast enough that the liquid glue doesn’t dry before you’re ready, because you are going to want to have a nice, even coat of glitter. Once you are ready, simply pour the gold glitter on the glue-coated plastic eggs until they have a nice layer of sparkles. Later, these beautiful, glittery plastic eggs will be added to the bottom of the pine cones!

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe After the Plastic Easter Eggs DryPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe After the Plastic Easter Eggs Dry

After the plastic eggs have been coated in glitter, just leave them to dry in their place. You are going to want to wait until both the pine cones and the plastic Easter eggs have dried completely. Depending on how thick your coat of glue was, this could take some time before you are ready to move on to the next step. But, it is worth the wait because nobody wants to smudge their glitter! So, take a break and let the glitter get settled as the glue dries.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Finishing Up the Ornament

Now that both halves of your homemade Christmas ornaments have been created, it’s time to put it altogether. So, the next part of this blog will be combining the pieces and putting the finishing touches on your gorgeous holiday decorations.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Gluing the Plastic EggPinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Gluing the Plastic Egg

Once both the plastic Easter eggs and the pine cones have completely dried, you are ready to combine the two finished pieces. You will be hot gluing the plastic Easter eggs to the bottom of each of the pine cones. So, you are going to want to start off by warming up your hot glue gun. After the glue gun is ready, you will add a line of glue to the inner perimeter of one of the plastic eggs. Quickly, move on to the next step before the glue dries.

Finally, you are ready to combine the two pieces of your diy ornament. This step will be pretty simple, but you need to be gentle to make sure your don’t accidentally remove the glitter. So, place your plastic egg half over the bottom of your pine cone. Then, hold the two pieces together for a few moments so the hot glue has an opportunity to dry. Then, repeat the gluing and combining steps with each of the remaining pine cones. Together, the pine cone and the small, plastic egg halves will create a wonderful, sparkly ornament for your Christmas Tree!

Now that your homemade ornament has both its halves put together, you need to get your craft ready to hang up on the Christmas tree! So, grab either the twine or the ribbon and let’s get started. Since we chose to use the twine, we will refer to it as such during this step. Just know that you will be using the hanging device that you chose. Now, you can take your nearly finished ornament and loop the twine around the top of the pine cone. Make sure to secure the twine around the ornament. Then, make a smaller loop at the top of the twine to make sure your new Christmas decorations can be hung up on the tree this year.

Pinecone Christmas Ornaments Recipe Sleigh Ride

Not only is creating some homemade Christmas crafts with our Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil a fun way to celebrate this season, but taking an actual Sleigh Ride would be absolutely perfect. Nothing compares to riding on a horse drawn sleigh through the snow on a gorgeous winter day. Every year my hometown would have a Christmas festival with crafts in the library, lights down main street, hot chocolate, and the beautiful horse-drawn sleigh. There was nothing more magical than a ride in the sleigh with a warm hot chocolate and light, fluffy snow drifting from above. This lovely tradition is just one of the many that makes Christmas so wonderful!

Sleigh Ride Fragrance OilSleigh Ride Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil is a holiday scent by Natures Garden. This aroma is a wonderfully jolly Christmas blend of pine trees, holly berries, cinnamon sticks, and sweet vanilla with a few other notes. This scent is not only a perfect holiday scent for Christmas time, but this fragrance is an Natures Garden original as well! We hope that you are happy with this aroma and have a happy holiday season!

What Does Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a Christmas Scent. A wonderful blend of pine, apples and cinnamon, bayberry, holly, and a hint of vanilla. An NG Original!

How Do Our Customers Use Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil in Air Freshening Products?

Create beautiful and seasonally appropriate room scenting products of all kinds. Room scenting products, such as potpourri, incense, and reed stick diffusers, can have this Christmas scent included in their recipes at a rate of 50% overall.  Also, aroma bead products that use this pine tree, vanilla, and cinnamon fragrance oil have a nice and strong scent retained.  Another option is creating homemade smelly jelly jars.  Our smelly jelly crystals allow you to create adorable air freshening jar that are perfect for school dorms and bathrooms.

How Do Our Customers Use Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil in Handcrafted Candles?

This holiday season get swept away on a scenic sleigh ride by creating handcrafted candles with our magical Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil.  Candles and wax melts can include up to 10% of this fragrance oil. Pillar of Bliss, WOW Wax, as well as our Joy Wax all will perform perfectly for this scent.  Also, if you are looking for a natural wax, try one of our soy waxes.  We have found that all of the Golden Brands perform wonderfully with Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil.  This includes the 100% Soy Wax 415, Golden Foods 464, and Golden Brands 444. Lastly, our palm waxes.  Both our palm container and our palm pillar waxes perform amazingly well with this scent.  With the wax having a crystallized effect, it reminds me of a blanket of snow covering the candle.  Not only that, but our palm waxes are eco-friendly, coming from sustainable sources.

How Do Our Customers Color Their Room Scenting Products Using Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil?

Are you undecided on how to color your products using Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil?  Our recommendation is using eight drops of green candle colorant and two drops of black liquid candle dye.  Alternatively, you could use an ample amount of shredded green and black color blocks in the wax.  We have chosen these suggestions for a four pound batch.  When coloring your candles and melt with crayons you do risk clogging your wick.  For this reason, we never recommend crayons as a suitable candle colorant.

How Do Our Customers Use Sleigh Ride Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Products?

While this holiday fragrance oil can be included room scenting products, this scent is not body safe.  Therefore, it can not be used to create bath and body products.  Since this Christmas time fragrance oil is not a body safe scent, bath oils, bath gels, soaps, lotions,  and other related bath and body products can not safely include this fragrance oil.  Even though homemade cleaning products are not meant to be used directly on the body, it is unable to contain this scent due to the opportunity of it coming into contact with skin.

Whether you are using this fragrance oil to add a bit of cheer to your holiday products or just enjoying this scent in your everyday products, we hope that you enjoy this fragrance oil!
