DIY Wreath with Gathered Pine Cones
Ah, the beauty of nature’s bounty! Crafting a wreath from gathered pine cones is a wonderful way to bring a touch of the outdoors into your home. I’ve found that making my own pine cone wreath is both therapeutic and gratifying. Let me walk you through the steps of creating your own:
- Gathered pine cones (about 40-60, depending on their size and your wreath frame)
- A wire wreath frame (available at craft stores)
- Floral wire or hot glue gun
- Clear sealant spray (optional)
- Decorative elements (optional) – ribbons, ornaments, faux berries, etc.
Step One: Preparation
Start by laying out all your gathered pine cones. I like to sort them by size for easier access when I begin arranging them.
Step Two: Cleaning the Pine Cones
If your pine cones were gathered from the outdoors, they might have some dirt or tiny critters. I gently brush off the dirt and bake them at a low temperature (around 200°F or 90°C) for about 45 minutes to sanitize them. Once they’re cool, they’re ready to use.

Step Three: Starting the Base
Securely attach one end of your floral wire to the wire wreath frame. If you’re using a hot glue gun, keep it plugged in and ready.
Step Four: Attaching the Pine Cones
Begin by taking your largest pine cones and attaching them to the wire frame. You can either wrap the floral wire around the base of each pine cone or use a dab of hot glue to stick them directly to the frame. I found that for a fuller look, it’s best to layer them closely together.
Step Five: Building Up Layers
Once the first layer is done, start building additional layers on top, making sure to cover any gaps. Mixing and matching pine cone sizes can add depth and interest.
Step Six: Adding Decorative Elements
Once you’re satisfied with your pine cone arrangement, you can weave in decorative elements. I sometimes intertwine ribbons or tuck in faux berries for a festive touch.

Step Seven: Sealant Spray (Optional)
If you want your wreath to last longer and have a shiny appearance, give it a gentle spray with a clear sealant. This will also help to keep the pine cones in place.
Step Eight: Hanging Your Wreath
Attach a sturdy ribbon or wire at the top of your wreath frame. Make sure it’s secure enough to support the weight.
Admire Your Creation
Hang your wreath on your door, above your fireplace, or any spot that needs a touch of nature-inspired charm. Every time I look at mine, I’m reminded of the simple beauty that nature offers us.
