This is a very lovely ornament and would make a great gift. It does take some time to cut, fold, and pin everything together, but the outcome is well worth the time spent.





  1. Cut your paper in 1 3/4 inch strips.
  2. Cut strips of paper.

  3. Fold the corner of the end to make a triangle, cut the excess off and repeat with the entire strip to make a bunch or triangles. Fold the triangles in half one more time to make smaller triangles. It is essential that they are square pieces of paper folded twice diagonally.
  4. Folding paper.


  5. Make 21 of one color (white) and 20 of the other (red).
  6. Cut a 1 inch white square. Cover the smaller end of the egg with the square and pin the four corners in place.
  7. Covering with square of paper.

  8. Place four red triangles around the the small end of the egg. Place them so all four of the corners meet at the tip of the egg.
  9. Now place four white triangles 1/4 inch from the last row of triangles and off set from the previous row. Continue adding rows until the egg is covered.
  10. Adding triangles.

  11. Take your remaining white triangle and unfold it and then re-fold into a small square by folding it twice. Pin this at the very top to cover the last pins.

  13. Cut some ribbon and make a large loop, tie a knot or bow with the left over ends and pin it to the top. You may want to use more than one pin to ensure that the ribbon won't fall off when it is hung on your tree.
  14. Finished red and white paper pinecone.
