New Years Eve will be here before you know it, and with a new year comes a lot of celebration! Whether you are at a party with friends or staying in with your family, we want to help you be as festive as possible as you ring in the new year!
One of our favorite ways to make a centerpiece is by using pinecones, so if you are looking for a new years centerpiece this is the one we recommend!

For us here in Ontario, it’s always a toss up if we are going to have a beautiful blanket of snow for New Years. By January or Februry it’s almost always guaranteed, but in the end of December it is hit or miss. There is something about fresh white snow that makes ringing in a new year wonderfully. No matter the weather though, we can bring in nice touches of nature indoors when we make a pinecone centerpiece.
This is why one of the reasons we recommend making this New Years centerpiece. Other reasons to make a pinecone centerpiece are:
- It’s affordable
- They are neutral enough to go with any other type of decorations
- It’s great as a gift
- It is easy to add any type of sign you would like to it!
You can be as clever and creative as you wish with these centerpieces. You could even keep it out year round and add other signs to it throughout the year! Whatever works best for your household works best for this craft.

How to Make a New Years Centerpiece Craft using Pine Cones
I shared the tutorial for making this New Years centerpiece craft on a Facebook Live which you can catch here.
Next, paint the pine cones and let them dry completely on a piece of wax paper or parchment paper to keep it from sticking.
Once dry, apply a generous amount of glue to the dowel/skewer and place the dowel/skewer into the hole in the pine cone.
Take some ribbon or paper and curl it before placing them in the vase.
Add the pine cones on the dowels/skewers in the vase.
