How To Make A Pinecone Wreath Easily

6 Materials
20 Minutes

Welcome to Cloches & Lavender today I am sharing how to make a pinecone wreath easily. I did add a bit of a twist because I enjoy using natural elements so much. I especially enjoy using these for the holidays.

Because Christmas is on a Bloggers mind right now, I made this pinecone wreath. By the way, this is so easy it took me 20 minutes to complete.

Here’s my twist, because I enjoy adding natural elements to my decor I did add some Hazelnuts in the shell.

Let’s take a look at how to make a pinecone wreath easily.

Wreath Making Supplies:

For the most part, when I am making a wreath I begin with my form.

WREATH FORMS: wire, foam or grapevine

RIBBON TO WRAP THE FORM: brown or natural

GLUE: hot, or tacky

PINECONES FOR THE WREATH: natural medium and natural mini



I will be hanging this wreath on an antique cathedral rustic shutter in my kitchen for this upcoming Christmas.

How To Make This Pinecone Wreath Easily

I’m using an 8″ wire wreath form for this project. I wrap it with brown burlap and add hot glue so it’s secure. Next, I continue wrapping the wire piece. After it’s covered I add a bit of hot glue again to secure.

Now, using your hot glue gun begin to add your pinecones. After adding a decent amount of glue, place the pinecone on the wreath form. Hold for a few seconds to set the pinecone. This process took me 15 minutes.

Incidentally, you will notice I have a piece of ribbon on the top of my wreath. I did this because I want the pinecone piece to lay flat.

Next, begin adding your nuts to fill the gaps of the pinecones. Adding the nuts is also easy and takes no time. As a rule, I add hot glue to the tips of the nuts and they nestle in between the pinecones easily. After applying the hot glue simply hold the nut for a moment to set.

After I finished this project and it was ready to hang, I added two more pinecones easily and one hazelnut.

This makes a wonderful gift, there’s nothing like giving a homemade gift as a Christmas present. Often times they are loved and appreciated the most!

NotesHow To Make A Pinecone Wreath Easily

By an 8″ wreath form

Gather pinecones and burlap ribbon. Begin wrapping and adding hot glue to the end of the ribbon and hold to stick.

When you get to the end of the ribbon add hot glue and hold to set.

Cut a piece of ribbon to give you room to hang before gluing the pieces on the wreath form. Lay it on top until you get the first two rows of pinecones glued.

This will allow the wreath to hang flat

Now hot glue each pinecone and hold until set. Contine around the wreath until covered with the pinecones.

    Super cute. I don't understand what you meant by having the piece of ribbon across the wreath because you want the pinecone piece to lay flat. Can you please explain a little differently so I can better understand? Thank you.

    Did you bake the chestnuts first to eliminate the crawlies inside?
