Add a beautiful wall or door hanging for seasonal decor with a DIY Pinecone Wreath. Follow these tips and tricks to create the perfect one!
Hi y’all. Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Last week my friend and I tried our hands at making pinecone wreaths. They turned out gorgeous. I didn’t take step by step pictures but I wanted to share with you the outcome and provide a couple of helpful tips for you if you decide to try this yourself.
How to Create a Pinecone Wreath
Materials for Pinecone Wreath:
- Foam wreath form
- Lots of pinecones =)
- hot-glue gun
- jewelry wire (optional) We poked it through the styrofoam from the backside of the form, looped it back through, and twisted the ends together, leaving a little slack at the top for the “hanger”.
- spray paint
Collecting pinecones might be the best part of this DIY!
- Tip 1: Spray paint your wreath form brown. It will camouflage nicely with the pinecones.
- Tip 2: As you glue on your pinecones, pick off the little “knob” on the bottom so that they lay flatter.
- Tip 3: Have LOTS of glue sticks available.
My friend glued her pinecones on in a natural way with all different sizes, but made sure that the different shades of colors were mixed in evenly. I LOVE the way it turned out. The texture is AMAZING.
I attached similar sized pinecones in rings, putting smaller ones on the edges of the foam wreath.
My wreath form wasn’t painted beforehand, so I decided to spray paint “mist” it gold to cover the exposed green styrofoam but still let some of the pinecone color through. (Just do a very light coat of spray paint.) The gold paint and ribbon makes it perfect for a holiday pinecone wreath.
Making pinecone wreaths takes some patience but it’s a fun DIY and it looks amazing! Have you tried making one?
