A pinecone wreath is an easy holiday decorating project that expresses the simplicity and natural beauty of this time of year. A wreath made from pinecones can be displayed from the end of October through the new year.
Making your own pinecone wreath is easier than making a traditional wreath from greens because the natural structure of a pinecone lends easily to holding onto wire. The only things you’ll need for this craft are pinecones, a wire wreath base and florist’s wire.
Arrange pinecones around the wire base so all the wire is covered. You can paint the base brown to help it blend in better. Wrap wire around the end of each pinecone and secure it in place on the wire base. Use a variety of pinecone sizes to create a more interesting look. Finish the wreath with a colorful bow.
Display your homemade pinecone wreath on your front door, or present them to neighbors as a holiday gift. If you’re looking for other ways to decorate with pinecones, check out this list of ideas.
