Pine Cone Wreath

I've seen many beautiful pine cone wreaths for purchase in the $40-$50 range.  
I wanted one, but for a little a LOT cheaper.  Over the last few months I've been collecting pine cones with help from the ladybug and the little guy.  

 

other materials needed:
styrofoam wreath
glue gun
brown paint



I painted the styrofoam brown (just in case there were any spaces showing between the pine cones).  After it dried I just started randomly gluing the pine cones on.  I tried to get them as close together as possible.


Easy as pie.  I used a 40% off coupon from Michaels for the styrofoam wreath.

It turned out great! I love me some pine cones! And the best part is I can usually get them for free down in the piney woods of East Texas!
