Christmas, the season for evergreens…

So, Thanksgiving is just about done. As we are recovering from our comfortable turkey coma, it’s time to start getting ready for Christmas. Consequently, we also have to ponder on the themes of decorations we’d like to make this year. Since there is an obvious connection between the Yuletide spirit and evergreens, why not consider some pine cone patterns?

These are quite easy and very thematic. They are also definitely very attractive and will not only match your tree, but be a great stocking stuffer as well. Moreover, you can combine them with some pine scents easily available from local craft stores. In this way, they’ll add that “foresty”ambiance to any Christmas get up.

Of course, a pine cone is a pinecone, and you may think they’re a bit ho-hum. However, have a look below, and think of the customizing possibilities.

Pine Cone

Our first coniferous ornament is a simple hanging one. It’s not only is it quite realistically shaped. It’s also a great way to use up some earth tone yarn ends that aren’t always immediately useful.

It’s a fun and easy way to add some earthy goodness to your tree. Also, if you want, you can make these cones in some innovative, fun colors too depending on your tree’s theme.

Crochet Spruce Cones

Next, this ornament is actually a spruce cone. Like its namesake, it is dense and quite smoothly ovoid, which would contrast so nicely with the more traditionally open pine cone. This is very reminiscent of blue spruce cones.

Pine Cone Christmas Ornament Tutorial

Finally, here is another realistic pine cone ornament. This pattern is great, because the quality of the tutorial makes it easy to get up to speed. The cones themselves are very attractive and will greatly complement any decorative theme.

They are like a typical pine fruit, quite bulbous and have the petals opened. Thus’ they’ll be a great space filler, especially if your tree’s a little thin or scraggly.
