I’ve lived in the same little house in RVA for about a year & a half now, & one of my favorite things about it is the mini forest in the backyard: trees, flowers, vines, & in the fall…so many pinecones! Last year, I gathered up a large collection of them to help decorate my house for the season. I made a very simple & festive pinecone garland, to hang on the hutch in my living room.
This year, I gathered another round of pinecones, only this time, I helped my friend, Melissa make one for her house.
To make this lovely fall decor, you need the following:
30-60 Pinecones (depending on how long you want it to be)
*Optional: Hot Cider & Netflix
All you have to do is measure out how long you want your garland to be with the twine, leaving a few extra inches at the end for hanging purposes. Lay it flat, then cut several pieces of twine about 6 inches long. These smaller pieces will then wrap around the base of the pinecone, & attach to the long anchor piece. When wrapping the smaller twine around the pinecone, tie it in a double knot, then double knot that onto the anchor. Repeat this with all of the pinecones, making sure to slide the knots on the anchor as close together as possible to allow the pinecones to look clustered.
A couple cups of cider later, & you’re done! It’s so simple! What a fun way to add a natural fall touch to your home.
