Spruce and Pine Cone Wreath

We spent the weekend decorating our house for Christmas.  I have tons of fun crafts to show you this week and wanted to start off with a wreath I created using branches we snipped off from the bottom of our beautiful Christmas tree {I’m claiming it’s the most perfect Christmas tree I’ve ever had-you’ll get to judge for yourself later in the week, but it’s the perfect shape and the most beautiful green}.  Anyway, here’s my wreath.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • wreath form
  • muslin {or other neutral fabric}
  • branches from a spruce tree
  • pine cones

I started by tearing off the filters from an old coffee filter wreath I made last year.  It was pretty, but time to retire it.

Hiding all the scrap coffee filters, I wrapped the form in some muslin I had laying in my fabric drawer.

We had just finished decorating our tree and Mike had trimmed off some branches that were hanging low so I decided to use them for a few decorating projects.  I also grabbed a bag of pine cones at the Dollar Tree {9 pine cones for $1} to add a little interest.

I used some sheers to trim the green off of the stems and started gluing them around the wreath.

After I initially glued the branches, I went back through and filled in some empty spaces.  Then it was time to add the pine cones.  I laid my pine cones out first to determine my spacing, the grabbed my hot glue and started sticking them down.

And that’s it.  About as easy as it gets.  I decided to hang it in our dining room since that room has a rustic, woodsy feel and this fits the bill.  I rearranged a few times with other items from my Christmas box so you’ll see a few different shots below.  I have the wreath hanging from one of the glass floating shelves.  I love that barn door shelf:)






Total cost:  $1.  I had the muslin, wreath form, and snipped the branches from my tree so all I had to buy were the pine cones:)  It’s the perfect rustic holiday wreath.  What holiday decorating did you do this weekend?  Anyone have a cheap wreath to share?
