Every year I go searching for pinecones. They are lots of different sizes that drop off the pine trees. My favorite is the jumbo size that I love displaying on my tables or in baskets. Here are easy steps in How To Make a Pinecone Wreath.
This easy pinecone wreath you can make for all season with pinecones. This wreath took me less than one hour to make. You can find pinecones in your back yard and if not there is plenty to find at Amazon or Micheals. To give it some fragrance you can find scented ones as well. This pinecone wreath will last forever as long as you use heavy duty glue. I suggest Gorilla Glue stick.
- Craft Ring (18 inches)
- Pinecones (15 to 20)
- Roll of Burlap
- Glue Gun
- Floral Wire
- Gorilla Glue Stick
- Hand Pruners
Step 1: With glue gun cover enter ring with burlap.
This part is easy to do just cover the entire ring with glue and let dry for an hour before you add the pinecones. Make sure you cover the entire ring on both sides.
Step 2: Cut up the pinecones in half and glue the flatter side down all around the ring.
Use pruning clippers to cut up the pinecones in half. It works very well.
Step 3: Add the acorn with a glue gun.
Add the acorns in between the pinecones.
Step 4: Make a pretty bow with leftover burlap and tie it with wire on the wreath.
You can use many different styles of bows for all different seasons
Step 5: Attach a piece of wire on the back side of the wreath to hang it.
I hope this rustic pinecone wreath has inspired you to search for medium size pinecones in your area. Remember they can be used all year long.
