Instead of using typical garland, go for a more natural look (and save money) by crafting a strand of pinecones.

TOOLS

  • scissors/wire cutters

MATERIALS

  • pinecones – at least 60 to 80 in all different sizes
  • floral wire
  • thick wrapped wire

Not Just for Christmas

We made our pinecone garland to decorate a fireplace at holiday time. But a strand or two would look great any time of the year hanging in or outside your home, or use them as wedding or party decoration.

Cut Wire

Cut 8-inch long lengths of floral wire, one for each pinecone.

Wrap Pinecone

Wrap each wire around the base of the pinecone and secure in place by twisting together. Take three to four wires and twist them together to make a bunch of three to four pinecones.


STEP 4

Gather Bunches Together

Cut a length of the thick wrapped wire the length of the final garland. Secure bunches of pinecones by wrapping the bunch of floral wire to the thick wrapped wire. Continue to secure the pinecone bunches along the thicker wire.
