cone wreath

Do you have sturdy cardboard?  Pinecones?  Glue gun?  Yarn?  Ribbon?  Then you are set to make a simple, elegant fall wreath for your front door:

  1. Cut cardboard to the size & shape desired
  2. Arrange & glue pinecones to cardboard
  3. Attach thick yarn to the inside & outside perimeters for a finished look
  4. Glue &/or tape ribbon to the upper backside corners to create a hook – wire edged ribbon makes nice curls to drape down

A similar idea using nuts from Martha Stewart:
