I’ve been making pine cone crafts since I was a kid.  I grew up in the woods, so they were never in short supply!  There is something very Christmas-y about pine cones, which makes them all the more perfect for turning into tiny Christmas trees!  At Green Eyed Monster, a blog by sisters Ash and Kimmy, I came across these simple little lovelies decked out with glitter and pom poms.  It’s a fairly kid-friendly project, though when it comes time to attach the pom poms (which calls for hot glue), depending on the age of the child you with want to either help, closely supervise, or replace the hot glue with a different, less dangerous kind of glue.   [how to make pine cone Christmas trees]
