Rustic Pinecone Wreath Tutorial

Hi there! 

As promised I'm back with a Rustic Pinecone Wreath tutorial. I made one for my front door and it turned out quite cute, so I decided to share a tutorial with all my blog friends! 



Things you will need: 

Lots and lots of pinecones-collect as many as you can or if you are an avid collector like me, you'll already have some handy! 

An old wire hanger 

Wire 

White paint 

Small paint brush


Paint the tips of the pinecones white to add a rustic effect. 



Shape the hanger into desired shape...I went for a square...just because!



Then start twisting the wire around the pinecones and then twist the pinecone garland around the wire hanger. Once you have the foundation done you can keep adding more pinecones around the corners and keep twisting the wires at the back of the wreath.

And there you have it...one Rustic Pinecone Christmas Wreath!






It looked pretty but I kept feeling that it was missing something...so I put down my camera, ran back inside and brought out my little stars and hung one in the centre! There....now it looks complete!

It's the perfect addition to our front door!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. I recently saw a similar wreath for sale at $60.00. I loved it but no way was I paying that. Thanks for the tutorial.
