Pretty Picky Pine Cone Wreath

Just one wasn’t enough!  Our front door was still bare!  After we finished the hydrangea wreaths I tackled putting together a pine cone wreath like some of these other inspirational pins. (click for sources)

Pin1Pin2I purchased 3 bags of pinecones at Michaels and swiped from my sisters stash, so I’ll add that in as well.  $2.99 x 4 bags + another grapevine wreath I got at Joannes for $3, so this wreath only cost me $15.  Not too bad!

I started by laying out all the pine cones on the table to see what we had for size and which ones were the prettiest.  Then I just started putting them together like a puzzle using the glue gun as I went along.  Some went up-ways, some went sideways, some went down-ways…even diagonal-ways! I plucked out some of the prickly branches where I needed the pine cone to sit a little more flat and not stick up so much.

I see a spot or two I could fill in, but maybe next year.  The pine cones smell like cinnamon, so it smells good when we walk in the door!

I may add an ribbon like the inspiration photos above, but I’m just happy I got it done now to enjoy for a few months before the next season’s decor goes up!
