DIY: White Pinecone Wreath

I love this Jayson Home and Garden Maine Pinecone Wreath ($28) because it's simple, elegant, and looks great as is or tied with a red ribbon. Although it's inexpensive, I could never bring myself to buy it because it's such a simple DIY project. So, if you live in the vicinity of some pine trees and want to make your very own white pinecone wreath, you can learn the steps when you

Supplies:

  • 1 grapevine wreath
  • Pinecones (35-50, depending on size)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Glue sticks
  • Can of white, or off-white spray paint.
  • Newspaper, or some sort of dropcloth.

Steps:

  1. Hot glue gun the pine cones in two or three rings across the wreath, depending on the size of the cones and the wreath. If you want to be symmetrical, put the largest pinecones in the middle ring, and the smaller pinecones in the outside ring. To keep the pinecones stable, use a lot of glue on their bottoms.

  2. Once all the pinecones are glued, let the wreath sit and air dry for a while.
  3. Lay newspaper on the ground or on a table, and lay the wreath on it.
  4. Spray paint the wreath until it is completely white.
  5. Air dry.
  6. Hang and enjoy! The wreath will most likely be heavy, so be sure to use a heavy-duty hanger of some sort.
