3 tips before you start

1) I built all three Christmas wreaths on a 30 centimeter or 12-inch wire wreath frame.

2) You can clean and open pinecones, which you have collected from the woods, by baking the pinecones on a lined baking tray in the oven for 30 minutes to one hour.

3) I used fresh twigs for some of the wreaths, but you can also switch to artificial plants instead.

Instructions

Classic Red and Green Christmas Pinecone Wreath

  1. Attach the pinecones. To craft a classic red and green pinecone wreath, apply hot glue to the bottom of the pinecones and attach to wreath frame. Hot glue can cause burns, so please be careful when handling the glue gun. Continue adding pinecones to cover the wire frame but leave a little space in between the pinecones. Let the glue dry completely.
  2. Add the twigs and ornaments. Shorten conifer and holly twigs to a length of 5 to 8 centimeters, which is 2 to 3 inches. Gather three mini wired bauble ornaments and twist into a tight bundle. Then fill the gaps between the pinecones with twigs and bauble ornaments. Use the wire frame and pinecones to tuck in the twigs and ornaments.


Icy Winter Christmas Pinecone Wreath

  1. Frost the pinecones and boxwood. For a frosty winter pinecone wreath, paint the tips of the pinecones and boxwood twigs with white acrylic paint and let dry. You can also sprinkle artificial snow or granulated sugar on the wet paint to create an even icier look.
  2. Put the wreath together. Attach the pinecones as explained in the previous step and fill in the wreath with boxwood twigs, silver leaves, and bauble ornaments. We finished the wreath by covering any remaining bare spots with mini pinecones and glitter stars.

Rose Gold Christmas Pinecone Wreath

  1. Spray paint the pinecones. To make a romantic rose gold pinecone wreath, spray the pinecones generously with rose gold metallic spray paint.
  2. Frost the silk flowers. Apply white glue to the edges of silk roses and carnations and dip in artificial snow to make them appear frost-covered. Allow all materials to dry well.
  3. Finish the wreath. Then hot glue the pinecones and dusty pink bauble ornaments tightly onto the wreath frame. Use the frosted flowers to fill in gaps.
