Cheerful Woodsy Greeting

This pine-cone tree welcomes guests with woodsy holiday charm.

Gathering the Materials

You will need: floral foam cone/ 15-20 each large, medium, and small pine cones (at least one tall one)/ wired floral picks/ medium gauge floral wire/ wire cutters

Adding the Picks

Use the wire from the picks to wrap tightly around a few pieces of the bottom of the pine cone. Twist the wire tightly to secure the pick as close to the base of the pine cone as possible. (NOTE: if the wire is not heavy enough, replace it with heavier gauge wire.)

Attaching the Large Pine Cones

Insert the first layer of pine cones about 1/2 inch from the base of the floral cone. Continue inserting the picks/cones around the base with no space between them.

Adding the Medium Pine Cones

Add another row of large cones and then begin adding the medium cones filling in as much space as possible from the previous row. Fill all but the last row of the floral cone with medium cones getting smaller as you move up the cone.

Filling in With Small Pine Cones

Fill the last row with the largest of the small pine cones. Use the remaining pine cones to fill in any gaps between the larger pine cones.

Adding the Tree Top

Use a tall pine cone for the tree topper.

Rustic Holiday Decor

Place your pine cone tree with a few vintage ornaments and some more small pine cones for a beautiful arrangement.
