This lovely pinecone wreath is a super simple and inexpensive project you can create in no time at all.
Fortunately, we have quite a lot of pine trees at our house so I was able to just collect the pinecones from our yard. If you get your pinecones from outside you need to bake them in the oven before use. Bugs live down in the pinecones and you don’t want that. Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes. I put my pinecones right on my baking sheet, but next time I do this I’ll line the sheet with parchment paper first. I had some pine sap leak out that was a bear to get off. Just a little tip from me to you.
Once your pinecones are baked, all you need is a flat wreath form, a hot glue gun and you’re ready to go.
Start by applying a generous amount of hot glue on the wreath form.
Continue adding pinecones to your wreath form. You need to really nudge them up together so you don’t see the wreath form in between the cones.
It took me about 15 minutes to glue all my pinecones onto the wreath form.
One of the great things about this wreath is it’s not just for Christmas, it’ll look wonderful all winter long. I opted for a neutral, champagne colored ribbon to hang my wreath.
I love the rustic feel of the wreath paired with the shimmering mirror tile wall.
Until next time….
