Easy Glittered Pinecone Door Hanger
Hello, Pretty Handy Girl readers! Can you believe we are already one week into November! It is almost time to break out the Christmas decor, so I’m sharing a fun and easy craft to kick off your holiday decorating!
My favorite thing about Christmas is that I can decorate with lots of sparkle! I had a simple DIY wreath on my door last year but this year I wanted to do something a little different. I created this colorful glittered pine cone door hanger which has a tiny surprise hidden inside!

- Floral wire
If you’re like me, you may have all the materials on hand – like the pine cones collected over various hikes, mason jar lids leftover from my desk organizer project and I always have glitter in my craft arsenal. Basically, this project could be free to make!
Before you start, be sure to clean your pine cones to get rid of all the bugs that might be lingering in them. I followed this tutorial.
Step 1 – Start by glittering the pine cones. The easiest way is to paint a bit of mod podge on the edges and sprinkle glitter over it. I have a short video showing how easy it is to do this!
Step 2 – Attach the glittered pine cones around the mason jar lid using hot glue.
Step 3 – Before adding the last pine cone, attach a bell to the mason jar lid using floral wire. Simply thread the floral wire through the bell and wrap it around the rim of the lid.
Step 4 – Finish the door hanger by adding one pine cone in the middle to cover up the rim and bell. Add a ribbon to hang it on your door.
Did you guess what the surprise was? The door hanger jingles every time the door moves! Isn’t it a beautiful sparkly way to greet visitors?!
What do you have on your door for the holidays?
