Mini Pine Cone Wreath Tutorial

Mini Pine Cone Wreath

These are much easier to make than the wreaths using the large pinecones. You can purchase 1400+ of the Tamarack pinecones for only $20 plus shipping from Bobbi at: I have searched high and low and she has the best prices and the best selection. 


Tamarack pine cones (these are only ¼ inch wide)
10 inch round polystyrene wreath (like smooth Styrofoam)
hot glue gun
18 – 20 inches of ½ inch wide ribbon
brown acrylic paint
sponge paint brush
paper plate

  • Pour a good amount of your paint onto the paper plate.
  • Paint the wreath brown all the way around, front and back. I did this over a paper towel by the way. Allow to dry for about 20 minutes. It doesn’t matter if it isn’t perfect. It just camouflages the gaps between the pine cones.

  • Pull the two ends of your ribbon together and knot them.
  • Place the ribbon around the wreath as shown in the picture.
  • Pull the unknotted end through the knotted loop.
  • Cut off the excess ribbon at the loop and glue the knot to the back of the wreath.
  • The front of your wreath will look like this.
  • Glue a row of pine cones around the center of the front of the wreath. Again, this doesn’t have to be perfect – just close.
  • Here is the progress after adding three rows of pine cones.
  • Here is the progress after I finished to the back through the center of the wreath.

  • Hang and enjoy.
