Pinecone Garland

Continuing my thrifty decorating adventure, I decided to create some pinecone garland. It’s perfect fall decor and it can easily be incorporated into rustic Christmas decor. Plus, it’s cheap, I didn’t spend any money! Go for a walk and gather some pinecones, don’t forget a bag! Be careful, my pine cones were crawling with spiders. Imagine my horror when I got home and poured the pine cones onto the kitchen table! Eeeek! After clearing out the spiders, it’s a very simple craft!

You will need:

12-15 pinecones

3-5 feet of hemp twine

Ribbon, burlap, spray paint, glitter, etc…

Instructions:

1) Starting at the beginning of your twine, tie your first pinecone and repeat until you reach your desired garland length. I spaced mine about four inches apart.

Tip: If you’re looking for something a little more fun, jazz it up! Add some ribbon, spray paint your pine cones, have fun with it!

    • Thanks! And awesome, I’m glad your pine cones will be put to a good use! I love collecting things while on walks or hikes and finding uses for them. I have a piece of driftwood hanging on my living room wall as a shelf. 🙂
