This fall make yourself a simple and elegant burlap and pinecone wreath to welcome the changing season!
How is it that I have lived in a house with FIVE pine trees and this is the very first pinecone wreath I have ever made? Better late than never, and I think this pinecone wreath was worth waiting for.
Living in a house with pine trees you learn that pinecones happen year round. I keep an ever growing pile on my front porch of my favorites. With 5 trees I get a variety of shades and sizes of pinecones. Some of the trees have really large pinecones, while a different tree has much smaller ones. Some are more red, others more gray. It’s really fun to see the variety that ends up in my pile.
Needless to say I had plenty to choose from when I decided to make a pinecone wreath. My main supplies were
- Wire Wreath
- Floral Wire
- Burlap (not pictured, last minute addition)
I started by wrapping my wire wreath in strips of burlap, using hot glue to secure the burlap pieces. Then I wrapped my pinecones around the middle with the floral wire.
It was easy to slip the floral wire through the burlap and twist the ends together on the back side of the wreath. Go around the wreath in a circle, keeping the bottoms of the pinecone’s facing the center and the top of the pinecone’s pointing out. Sweet, simple, and perfect for fall!
