I am super excited to share my pinecone wreath I made from recycled pinecones from other projects.
Stunning Pinecone Wreath:
I have created my share of pinecone crafts. There are so many ways you can use pinecones. This is one of my favorite wreaths to make.
To make this pinecone wreath you will need abut 50 assorted pinecone. Every year I go searching for pinecones to add to my collections. They are lots of different sizes that drop off the pine trees. My favorite is the jumbo size that I picked for this tutorial, I chose a combination of small one and medium ones. If you don’t have any laying around you can find them on Amazon or your local crafts stores.
Bits Of Advice:
- Organize everything ahead of time
- Decide on the shape of pinecone
- Wear gloves, pinecones can prick your hands.
Lets Get Started With The Making Wreath
I used a 14 inch doubled wire form. Make sure it is faced with the correct way to show in the picture above.
Using your gloves for this part. Make sure you wrap the wire twice around the middle of the pinecone. The form has 4 lines of metal. Make sure you have 2 inches of wire hanging to tie it around the first line of the wreath.
Once you have filled each line with pinecones. Push the pinecones close together and they will create a cluster of different shapes of pinecones. Tie the pinecones on every line of metal until the entire form is covered.
Once you have attached all the different kinds of pinecones on each metal line. If you see any gaps you can attach smaller ones to cover them. You may have to cut the wire longer to attach it to the metal line. Cut any hanging wires in the back with your wire cutter.
How to Make The bow for the pinecone wreath.
The ribbon Is always a nice touch to add at the end of your wreath. To make a large bow with 6 loops. It’s quite easy. Use ribbon that has wire in it. Leave a long 6-inch tail and fold 3 times the ribbon to form a large loop. Take a piece of the gauge wire and wrap around the middle of the ribbon that is folded. Spread the loops around until you have a 6 loop bow. Attach the bow by adding wire in the back of the bow and tie to the wreath.
