DIY Pinecone Garland
The count down to Christmas continues! I still have a ton of things to check off my list, but at least my decorating is done. I wanted to share another one of my DIY Christmas decorations. This pinecone garland is the perfect natural Christmas decoration! Pinecones really speak Christmas to me and I thought a garland would be a great way to incorporate them into my decor this year. The best part about it is that it’s practically free! I had twine sitting around from a previous DIY but you can easily get a roll for under $4. I gathered these fallen pine cones from trees in my neighborhood. I’m pretty resourceful 🙂
-Hammer (electric drill if you have one)
-Hammer the screws into the pinecones. This step is really hard! The bottom of the pinecones is very tough and hard to break through. If you have a drill with bits that you could use instead to drill holes I would definitely do that instead! It’s a lot safer 😉
-Next, string the pinecones onto twine spacing them evenly as desired. I used about 20 pinecones.
-Trim the twine to the desired length and voila! You have a pinecone garland.
I love the way that the garland turned out! I hung it in my room above my dress because I don’t have a mantle in my apartment but it would look gorgeous above a fireplace.
What kind of Christmas decorations do you like? 🙂
