How to make a Pinecone Wreath: Materials and tools
- pine cones: 55 to 65, sorted into 3 size groups (small, medium, large). If you don’t feel like gathering your own, you can check out some options on Amazon.
- a 12″ wire wreath form
- hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
- optional: LED fairy lights; evergreen branches, real or synthetic; berry sprigs.
How to make a pinecone wreath, Step 1: Glue medium pinecones to inner wires
Start with the inner ring. Take cones from the medium size group, add a dab of hot glue on each of the two inner rings, and quickly place the first pine cone onto the hot glue.
Repeat the step until you have glued an entire circle of pine cones like shown below.
How to make a pinecone wreath, Step 2: Glue large pine cones to the outer wires
Using pinecones from the biggest size group, glue a whole circle of pine cones onto the two outer wires of the frame.
The process is the same as in Step 1.
How to make a pinecone wreath, Step 3: Glue small pine cones to the middle
Using pine cones from the smallest size group, glue them to cover all the middle gaps.
These cones are a little trickier to glue than the first two groups, but just find a spot where it rests securely on the cones below. Use a lot of hot glue on the bottom of the small cones to stick them securely.
Vary the direction of the cones a bit to make it look more natural.
Now you have a basic pinecone wreath!
There are many ways to decorate this wreath, such as ribbons, green foliage, colorful berries, small ornaments… Just have fun!
How to make a pinecone wreath, Step 4: Add greenery
I took some evergreen cuttings and sprigs of berries, and tucked them in between the pine cones.
How easy is that?
Of course we can get more festive and add some LED fairy lights!
These lights operate on small battery packs that are easy to hide.
I can also see these wreaths being used as centerpieces on a table. Considering how easy one is to make, why not make a few and use them on the door and on the table?
Ours is hanging on a wall in the hallway and we love it!
