Project

Pinecone Napkin Holder

A napkin is ornamented with a bloom. Attach finished blossom with ribbon and tie around individual napkins.

Materials

  • Pinecone scales
  • Cardboard box (at least 4 inch square) with hinged lid
  • Floral wire
  • Card stock
  • Scissors
  • Tacky glue

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Fill a small bowl with scales. For the work surface, you'll need a cardboard box (at least 4 inches square) with a hinged lid.

  2. Step 2

    Snip 4 inches of floral wire; form a small hook on one end. From card stock, cut a disk a bit larger than the desired size of the bloom's center. Secure disk to box top by poking wire through both, letting hook rest in the center so the wire won't fall through.

  3. Step 3

    Using tacky glue, affix scales in a flower shape to disk; the hook will become covered with glue. For a fuller blossom, add another layer inside the first, using smaller scales, adding up to five layers for larger blooms.

  4. Step 4

    Use tacky glue to attach one or more cloves or tiny plant parts in the center; let dry, and remove bloom from box.
