Easy DIY Pine Cone Wreath Materials Instructions
• If you have gathered your pine cones rather than buying them: Bake your pine cones on a pan lined with aluminum foil for 30 minutes at 250° or on medium on your grill for 30 minutes (many people prefer the grill because these pine cones can carry some gross bugs) *Keep an eye on these while cooking so they’d don’t get burnt and start on fire*
• Let your pine cones cool. Continue to the next step.
• If you have purchased pine cones, begin here: start dipping your pine cones in paint, some of them completely and some just roll around a bit so you can still see the pine cone color. You want some variance so your pine cones do not all look alike. This makes this craft very forgiving as there really are no “mistakes!”
• Let dry overnight.
• Cut your floral wire in 9″ pieces and wrap around each pine cone one at a time. Leave leftover wire to wrap around your wreath wires.
• Lay out your pine cones as you would like them on your wreath. Stagger fully painted pine cones with moderately painted pine cones for an attractive look.
• Wrap the floral wire “tails” onto the metal wreath frame. This will take some time, so be patient.
• Once you do your whole wreath, add several more pine cones to fill in any gaps.
• To add volume use any remaining pine cones and hot glue them on top of any spaces you could not get to with your floral wire.
• Now, take your ribbon (36″ or so piece) and tie is around your wreath to form a hanger.
• Hot glue any accessories you’d like on your wreath (this is very minimal with only red and white berries)
• Now your wreath is ready to hang!
