Pinecone Rosette Garland

Pinecones and evergreens belong together, especially in holiday garlands. Here we've shaped them into rosettes.

Materials

  • Pinecones
  • 3-inch Styrofoam ball
  • Saw
  • Craft glue
  • Brown tissue paper
  • Floral wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Evergreen garland or swag

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Make the rosettes: start by sawing a 3-inch Styrofoam ball in half. Paint it with craft glue, and smooth on a piece of brown tissue paper, covering the Styrofoam completely. Cut floral wire into pieces about 5 inches long. Wrap the center of one piece of wire around the base of one pinecone; twist the wire to secure, leaving the ends loose. Attach the pinecone to the Styrofoam by poking the wire ends through it and out the flat side; twist the wire and fold flat to secure it. Continue adding pinecones, working from the edge to the top of the dome, until entire dome is covered; leave the flat side bare.

  2. Step 2

    Attach to garland: add a wire loop using the same technique, and hang the pinecone cluster at the corner of an evergreen garland or swag.
