Thanksgiving Crafts: Pinecone Photo Holder

Pinecone Photo Holder

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Using pinecones collected on a Thanksgiving nature walk (or bought at a craft store), let the kids make a simple photo holder for a family snapshot taken during the gathering - and send everyone home with a craft that will preserve their memories of a wonderful holiday.


  • Large pinecone
  • Photo or printout (or, if you don't have one yet, an index card)
  • Corrugated cardboard base
  • Twigs, acorns, and other natural treasures
  • Glue (we used Aleene's Original Tacky Glue)


Pinecone Photo Holder - Step 1

1. Start by inserting the photo, printout or index card into the pinecone so that it stands up straight.
