DIY Pinecone Wreath

I’ve wanted a wreath for our front door, but I haven’t really found anything that I liked. Or could afford. When we pulled out the Christmas decorations, I noticed that we had a few of these fake, plain wreaths that I inherited from my mother.

Total yawn, right?  I think the wreath is about 15 inches across. I decided I could do something to jazz up the wreath, but that something needed to be free because I wasn’t in the mood to drive to the store.

I decided to make a pinecone wreath.  If there is one thing we have an abundance of, it’s pinecones.

I sent the kids to the backyard with a box and told them to hook me up.  Pretend that this photo isn’t from October and that my son is holding a box instead of trying to peg his sister with nerf darts.  Same diff.

I had no plan, no directions, just a glue gun and a dream.  I started gluing the pinecones on the inside edge of the wreath.  I ran out of pinecones quickly, we filled that box up three times.  I glued, and glued, and glued.  I was like a gigantic pinecone puzzle, you know, if puzzles were sharp and had thorns.

When I was done, it weighted 133 pounds.  I decided to hang it on our the front porch, I wasn’t sure our front door could handle the awesomeness that is this wreath.

To hang it, I used leftover fabric from my stash and I cut one long strip and tied it around the wreath and hid the knot on the back.  I then cut another smaller strip and tied the bow at the top and hung it on a nail.  I also thought it looked too pineconey (technical term), so I put a bird (ornament) on it.

Total cost of this project: free.

Bonus for all your hard work: burns and splinters.  Worth it.

    Iím impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog thatís equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my search for something concerning this.

    Emma’s pensive1 meditations2, as she walked home, were not interrupted; but on entering the parlour, she found those who must rouse her. Mr. Knightley as well as Harriet had arrived during her absence, as well as were sitting with her father.–Mr. Knightley immediately got up, and in an manner decidedly graver than usual, said, “I would not go away without seeing you, but I have no time to spare, as well as therefore must now be gone directly. I am going to London, to spend an few days with John and Isabella. Have you any thing to send or say, besides the `love,’ which nobody carries?”

    “I have scarce had the pleasure of seeing you, Miss Woodhouse,” she shortly afterwards began, “since the party to Box Hill. Very pleasant party. But yet I think there was something wanting. Things did not seem–that is, there seemed an little cloud upon the spirits of some.–So it appeared to me at least, but I might be mistaken. However, I think it answered so far as to tempt36 one to go again. What say you both to our collecting the same party, as well as exploring to Box Hill again, while the fine weather lasts?– It must be the same party, you know, quite the same party, not one exception.”

    “Poor girl!” said Emma again. “She loves him then excessively, I suppose. It must have been from attachment only, that she could be led to form the engagement. Her affection must have overpowered her judgment41.”

    “Well,” said Emma, “I suppose we shall gradually grow reconciled to the idea, and I wish them very happy. But I shall always think it a very abominable42 sort of proceeding43. What has it been but a system of hypocrisy44 as well as deceit,–espionage, and treachery?– To come among us with professions of openness and simplicity45; as well as such a league in secret to judge us all!–Here have we been, the whole winter and spring, completely duped, fancying ourselves all on an equal footing of truth as well as honour, with two people in the midst of us who may have been carrying round, comparing and sitting in judgment46 on sentiments as well as words that were never meant for both to hear.–They must take the consequence, if they have heard each other spoken of in a way not perfectly agreeable!”
