One of my favorite ways to decorate for winter holidays is to bring the outdoors in with evergreen branches and pine cones. Creating long-lasting versions is a favorite with these other versions of crepe paper pine cones and pine branches. I was inspired by both, creating a new version from laminated copper and gold crepe paper mixed with the pretty long needles.

To begin this project, you can learn how to laminate crepe paper with this easy-to-follow video tutorial. Each crepe paper pine cone will use an average of 30 pieces so that you can cut enough for two cones on a 10×12 laminated piece of crepe.
Below is our list of tools and materials for this project. You can download the PDF template or the SVG file for your cutting machine using a rotary blade. Follow along with me in the replay of the live workshop to make these pretty branches that include long pine, pine cones, and silver twigs.
You can use these branches to decorate your mantel, place them into a vase for a centerpiece, or use them to create a festive wreath. The wonderful thing is that you can use them year after year.
