You will need…

  • real or faux small pinecones
  • white craft paint
  • red twine or yarn
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • scissors
  • paper plate

 

Step 1: Place a small amount of paint on the paper plate and dip pinecone to add color to the petal’s edges. Rotate pinecone as you dip it so each tip is covered with paint.

 

Step 2: Wrap end of yarn around the bottom of a pinecone and knot.

 

Step 3: Continue wrapping yarn around pinecones, wedging yarn under scales to secure it. Once desired length is reached, cut yarn. Secure any loose bits of yarn with a bit of hot glue.

 

Step 4: TAAAH-DAAAAH ! Once glue has cooled, drape garland over a fireplace mantel, buffet table, banister or any space in your home that could use a little holiday cheer. Use it also for your winter wedding decoration.
