Materials Needed:

  • foam wreath form
  • small gold encrusted pinecones
  • foam brush
  • gold paint
  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • 2" wide ribbon (1 yard)
  • scissors
  • tacks

Gather Supplies

Select and gather a foam wreath form, pinecones and ribbon. Tip: Use small tree ornaments as an alternative to pinecones.

Paint Styrofoam Wreath

Brush a layer of paint over the wreath in the same color as the pinecones to ensure wreath form isn't visible.

Apply Glue and Attach Pinecones

Place a small bead of glue on the underside of each pinecone then place on wreath; press and hold in place for a few seconds until secure. Tip: Place pinecones as close together as possible and vary the sizes to add textural interest.

Cover Wreath

Continue attaching pinecones until the entire front surface of the wreath is covered.

Apply on Back Edges

Turn the wreath over and glue pinecones along the back edges to ensure the foam surface won't be visible when the wreath is hanging.

Hang With Ribbon

Wrap the length of the ribbon around the top side of the wreath. Hang in place by pushing tacks through the ribbon along the top edge of a door or mirror.
