Perfect for Christmas and appropriate for the whole winter season, this winter pine cone wreath will make quite the statement adorning your front door this holiday season. Shining gold pine cones and baby’s breath turn a traditional wreath into a dazzling winter decor piece. A large ribbon hanger adds a pop of holiday color for the perfect finishing touch. Read on for my pine cone wreath DIY tutorial.
Pine Cone Wreath DIY Tutorial Supplies:
- 12″ White Foam Wreath Form
- Natural Pine Cones for Crafts (1lb) -2 pkgs
- Acrylic Paint in Spun Gold
- Foam Sponge Brush
- High Temp Hot Glue Gun (With lots of extra glue sticks)
- 18” Baby’s Breath Spray – 6 stems
- Gold Spray Paint
- Red Velvet Ribbon– 3-4″
Step 1. For the first step of this pine cone wreath DIY tutorial you’ll paint the edges of your pine cones using the metallic paint and brush. Set painted pine cones tips up to dry. You’ll also cut the babies breath stems into shortened bunches and spray paint.
Step 2. Next, you’ll prep your wreath form by painting it with the metallic paint. This will help camouflage any areas that may show through after pine cones are attached to the foam.
Step 3. When the wreath form, pine cones, and babies breath are dry you’ll glue your pine cones to your wreath form covering the front, inside, and outer side edge. (Leave the back of the wreath form empty for easy hanging.) If you have a variety of sizes, attach the large pine cones first and then fill in with the small and medium pine cones. This will require a lot of glue to keep the pine cones in place. You may need to hold the pine cone until it sets depending on the positioning.
