How To Make A Pinecone Wreath Easily

Today I am sharing how to make a pinecone wreath easily. I did add a bit of a twist because I enjoy using natural elements so much. I especially enjoy using these for the holidays.

Because Christmas is on a Bloggers mind right now, I made this pinecone wreath. By the way, this is so easy it took me 20 minutes to complete.

Here’s my twist, because I enjoy adding natural elements to my decor I did add some Hazelnuts in the shell.

Let’s take a look at how to make a pinecone wreath easily.

I’m using an 8″ wire wreath form for this project. I wrap it with brown burlap and add hot glue so it’s secure. Next, I continue wrapping the wire piece. After it’s covered I add a bit of hot glue again to secure.

Now, using your hot glue gun begin to add your pinecones. After adding a decent amount of glue, place the pinecone on the wreath form. Hold for a few seconds to set the pinecone. This process took me 15 minutes.

Incidentally, you will notice I have a piece of ribbon on the top of my wreath. I did this because I want the pinecone piece to lay flat.

Next, begin adding your nuts to fill the gaps of the pinecones. Adding the nuts is also easy and takes no time. As a rule, I add hot glue to the tips of the nuts and they nestle in between the pinecones easily. After applying the hot glue simply hold the nut for a moment to set.

After I finished this wreath project and it was ready to hang, I added two more pinecones easily and one hazelnut.
