- Double wire wreath form
- 22 gauge floral wire
- wired ribbon
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.
Making a 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.
