DIY Pinecone Wreath


DIY Pinecone Wreath by Liz Fourez for I Heart Nap Time

Hello again, friends! Are you enjoying the holiday season so far? I’ve been busy decking the halls and baking cookies, but today I thought I’d stop by and share one of my favorites new additions to our holiday decor this year… a beautiful, rustic, and super simple DIY Pinecone Wreath! I’m so excited to finally share this tutorial with you all. You won’t believe how easy it is!

  • wire hanger
  • pinecones
  • floral wire

Step one: Bend the bottom of your hanger into a circle shape. This will now be your wreath form. Use a pair of pliers to help you curve the wire, if necessary.

Step two: Cut a piece of floral wire about 8″ long. Wrap the wire around a pinecone, tucking it inside the cavities. Twist both ends of the wire together, securing it tightly around the pinecone.

Step three: Hold the pinecone against the hanger and wrap the remaining wire around the hanger, securing the pinecone onto the wreath.

Step four: Continue adding pinecones until the entire wreath is full. Keep the pinecones close together so you won’t see the hanger in back.

And that’s it! You can use the top of the hanger as a hook (like I did) or remove it with wire cutters if you prefer. I thought about wrapping some ribbon around the wreath or adding a big bow, but I think the pinecones are absolutely beautiful all on their own. The natural rustic vibe just adds such a warm and cozy feel to our home. I know this is a piece I’ll be using year after year!

    This wreath is so cute, I can see it up all through Winter. I just adore these pictures. I think you could add a little pink and use it for Valentines as well.

    I use to make pine cone wreaths. I put them on a wire frame.  I found if you soaked them in cold water, and wired them to the frame wet, they would crowd together as they dried.  That made the wreath thicker. Just for you.
