Pretty Pine Cone Wreath DIY

Using just a few materials, this pretty pine cone wreath is simple to create and makes a great statement on your front door. It's the perfect fall wreath that transitions beautifully into winter by swapping out the ribbon and leaf embellishments.

For a while now, I’ve been wanting to create a wreath that can take me from fall to winter, but without too much fuss to make.  This pretty pine cone wreath was the result. It is versatile and the embellishments can be changed out to complement the season. I am thrilled with how it turned out and it could not have been simpler to create!

Here’s how you can make your own:

MATERIALS

Pretty Pine Cone Wreath - materials

  • grapevine wreath
  • pine cones
  • glue gun + glue sticks
  • synthetic leaves
  • scissors
  • optional: spray paint (not pictured)
  • optional:  hand pruning shears (to clip any bits off the pine cones, where needed)

STEPS

Step 1:  Spray Paint (optional)

Spray paint your wreath and pine cones the same colour. This will allow all the materials to blend in.

Step 2:  Glue On Pine Cones

Glue each pine cone onto the wreath one at a time. To add interest, alternate the direction of each pine cone so that every other one has the tip pointing towards the interior. Make sure that the pine cones are snug, leaving no space between them.

Tip: Before you begin gluing on your pine cones, line them up on your wreath. You may find that a slimmer cone here and a fatter one there will help create the perfect ring with no spaces in between.

And don’t forget to use lots of glue! Since neither the wreath nor the pine cones are flat, it’s best not to be stingy on the glue. Before you are through one or two of your pine cones may fall off (it happens!). Don’t worry too much about that. Simple reapply the glue and put it back on the wreath.

Step 3:  Cut Leaves To Desired Shape

Gather your synthetic leaves of choice and cut them to your desired shape.

Although I liked the maple leaves I purchased at the craft store, I decided to cut them down. I wanted to create subtle embellishments and ones that could be easily replaced for the next season.

Step 4:  Add Leaves

Integrate your cut leaves by pushing the stems between the pine cones. Push them as far as is comfortable, so that the leaves are secured.

Step 5:  Hang & Enjoy!

Now simply add a ribbon and hang your masterpiece!

    I LOVE the yellow accents on this wreath with the white pinecones. Saved and pinned to make.

      Thanks Tracey – I really wanted to create some contrast and have the colour pop. And, of course, I’m looking forward to being able to re-use the wreath for Christmas. I’m already thinking about about what I may use to replace the yellow accents. Once I’ve decided, I’ll definitely be sharing it on the blog 🙂
