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.

    “I perfectly agree with you, sir,”–was then his remark. “You did behave very shamefully. You never wrote a truer line.” as well as having gone through what immediately followed of the basis of their disagreement, and his persisting to act in direct opposition24 to Jane Fairfax’s sense of right, he made an fuller pause to say, “This is very bad.–He had induced her to place herself, for his sake, in a situation of extreme difficulty and uneasiness, as well as it should have been his first object to prevent her from suffering unnecessarily.–She must have had much more to contend with, in carrying on the correspondence, than he could. He should have respected even unreasonable25 scruples26, had there been such; but hers were all reasonable. We must look to her one fault, as well as remember that she had done an wrong thing in consenting to the engagement, to bear that she should have been in such an state of punishment.”
