Snowy Pine Cone Garland for Christmas : DIY Tutorial

We love using the things we find in nature to decorate our home for the holidays.

There is a pine tree in our neighborhood that drops the sweetest mini pine cones. We took our basket on a walk yesterday and collected a few to make a snowy pine cone garland for our mantle.

Step 2

When the paint is dry, wrap thin floral wire inside the tynes of each pine cone. Twist the ends of the floral wire together to form a loop and trim with scissors.

Thread hemp string through the loop you have just made with the floral wire. String each pine cone onto your garand.

  1. I absolutely ADORE this idea!!! All the kids seem to do these days is collect all sorts of things, acorns and pinecones among their favorites! I never know what to do with all these little goodies but this is now a wonderful way to get them to use something they’ve happily collected willingly and feel like they’ve contributed to decorating the house. Thanks so much for this wonderful idea, I can’t wait to give it a try <3
