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)
I 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.
This was really so easy and a little mind numbing I forgot to take pictures, but I think it came out pretty good!
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!
Anyone else getting stuck my pine cones?
