Create a lovable Valentine wreath with pinecones that will add love to your home.
January can sometimes be a little depressing due to cold temperatures, post-holiday blues, and resolutions that can be overwhelming. One thing that is true to keep me fighting the blues is keeping creative! So I find that going outside and getting close to nature always is the best medicine.
So for the Valentine Day which is approaching soon. I choose to take some natural elements such as pinecones to create a pretty heart. What better way t show my loved ones at home than with my favorite natural treasures is with pine-cones.
- Glue Gun
- Garden Clipper
Step 1: Take a piece of cardboard and draw a shape of a valentine any size you want, I did mine 32 inches around. with scissors cut the valentine out.
Step 2: Use gloves because the pinecones are prickly and the garden clipper cut the pinecone in half. This will make the pinecone easier to glue flat on the cardboard surface. Once you have all of them cut in half, glue them flat to create the valentine shape.
Step 3: Fill the center with pinecones of any different sizes. You can stack them on top of each other to fill the gaps where the cardboard shows.
Step 4: Make two small holes in the back of valentine one on each end and string the wire through the holes to create a piece of wire for hanging. Make sure that you tie the length of wire short and taut.
Now your pinecone Valentine wreath is ready to be hung. Add it on your door or a wall
If you don’t have pinecones in your area, you can shop here at Micheals. They are super inexpensive, but I hope you can find them in your area since the whole purpose is to take a nice nature walk.
