I wanted to make a pinecone wreath for my door for fall, and give it a more modern spin -as in not the Christmas version from the 80’s, did your mom have one too? To make it a little more up-to-date, I spray painted it white, and added a really simple ribbon.

I love how it turned out, here’s how I made it.

First step, enlist the help of your children to go with you to pick up tons of pinecones ,can’t you just picture a lovely family fall walk in the woods -in real life, if they’re over the age of 8 you made need to use a little bribery. 😉

I was debating what kind of form to use, wire was an option, but let’s face it hot glue is easier than wiring every single pinecone to a wire form. I thought about foam, didn’t think it was sturdy enough -pinecones are heavy an masse. I thought about just cutting out a few layers of cardboard, than I found this. Perfect.

I added a string to one of holes before I started, to hang it from later. 😉 Wish I had spray painted it before I started, but you can benefit from my mistake, and spray your base first. Then break out the glue gun and get busy!

I went with two rows as a base and filled in a row of smaller pinecones on top. I used all the same shape and kind of pinecones, because I thought it looked a little more modern than mixing them.

Then it was time…for spray paint. I am slightly obsessed enjoy spray paint.

Here it is after one coat. Spray with many, many light coats for best coverage and to avoid drips, although pinecones are very forgiving.

I tied on a long white grosgrain ribbon. I think it’s less fussy than a bow and again makes it feel more up-to-date.

This would also be lovely for Christmas, but I think it looks like fall with all my other white fall accents, including tons of white pumpkins.

  3. I love spray painted pinecones, and I think the white makes them looks so elegant! Thanks for sharing at The CSI Project challenge this week!

  4. What size ring did you use & what size were the pinecones?

  5. Hi Ruth, I don’t remember what size wreath ring this was…maybe 12″, whatever fits your own door would be a good choice. The pinecones are just regular pinecones…maybe a couple inches in diameter, but anything would do, you’d just have to add more or less to fill in your form.
    Best of luck,

  6. Where can I find the ring?

  7. Hi Lisa,
