Succulent Topped Pinecones are fun and super easy to make. I love the way they look hanging in a window. Follow my easy DIY instructions below to help make these cute Succulent Topped Pinecones.
For this project you will need the following:
I found huge pinecones in beautiful Mammoth Lakes, CA. If you have never been there, I highly recommend it. It has some of the best skiing /snowboarding in the country. It is also known for their fishing, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, natural hot springs, and camping. The eastern entrance of Yosemite National Park is located 32 miles north of Mammoth.
The first step in making your Succulent Topped Pinecone is to ensure your pinecone is clean and free of bugs. There are a few ways you can do this, but I prefer to bake mine. Watch the Pinecone baking video below or skip to the next step.
First, set your pinecone in the cup and screw in the cup hook into the top center of your pinecone. Then, tie your ribbon or sting to the hook so you can easily hang once you are finished.
Next spray the top of your pinecone with tacky spray and add moss to the top. Finally, add glue to the base of your larger succulents and place them in the center of your pinecone.

From there you will continue to add glue gun glue to the base of the succulents. Then, place them on the moss and in between the top layers of your pinecone. Make sure you mix up the succulents. Use different textures and colors.
The succulent topped pinecone would be a great gift for a neighbor, teacher, friend or holiday host gift. Additionally, they would also make a great holiday decoration as well. Every 1-2 weeks spray as close to the base of the succulents as possible with the spray bottle. Specifically use the “stream” setting.
When you have finished displaying your succulent topped pinecone you can easily take it apart and plant the succulents. They will continue to thrive and they will not be damaged by the hot glue.
I think they look and smell amazing!!
