Free Wreath For The Holidays!!!!

1 Material
Yep. I said FREE. This is the easiest DIY wreath ever! All you will need for this project is:
Norway Spruce pine cones
Scrap cardboard
Glue gun and glue sticks
Large and medium sized dinner plates
Kitchen shears
Ink pen
First you are going to make your wreath form out of that piece of scrap cardboard. Trace the largest plate on to your cardboard.
Next trace around a second smaller plate in the center of the first one. You want about a 2-2 1/2 in space between the two circles so as to increase the stability of your wreath.
Use your kitchen shears to cut out your cardboard wreath form.
At this point while my glue gun was heating up I took the opportunity to lay out all of my pine cones and check their fit on my homemade wreath form to make sure they fit snug against each other with minimal gaps.
Be sure to press the pine cones firmly but gently in place till they set before moving on to the next one.
Here is my finished wreath! Just for fun I chose to use a plaid wool scarf to hang it with but a wide piece of pretty ribbon would also work well. I'll be changing this scarf out for a red plaid one in a few weeks for Christmas!

    I have a wire wreath frame and some fine wire so I think I'm going to wire my pine cones on and that way I can use it where it might get a bit damp but it won't hurt the frame and I can use it for next year also. Great idea.

    I made two similar for our daughters and they fell apart. I used hot glue. So then I tried gorilla glue and although it was tedious, they attached fine.
