Festive DIY Wreath Made from Pinecones and Greenery

When it comes to Christmas, I tend to get a little carried away….think Clark Griswald meets Elf. Well, maybe minus all the lights. My first step in decorating for the holidays is to pop a wreath on the door; it’s instantly festive, and puts me in the spirit! It’s also the only spot we can have the feel and smell of real greenery (thank you, allergies!).

I love the fresh wreaths from The Home Depot (such a great deal, too!), but this year I wanted to jazz mine up a bit, so I came up with this DIY wreath made from pinecones and greenery. The secret ingredient, though, is a tiny bit of spray paint.

How to Make the DIY Wreath

Materials for the Pinecone and Greenery Wreath


Step 1

Glue pine cones to the wreath form, working your way around creating small clusters, until the entire wreath is covered. See the Pinecone Wreath tutorial on my blog for more details on how to complete this part of the project.

Add a light layer of the white or pearl paint, to give the illusion of a snow dusting, but not enough that it covers the naturalness of the pinecones.

Step 2

Once that’s dry, spray a thin layer of silver glitter paint to give it some sparkle!

Step 3

Allow that to dry completely, then tie the pinecone form to the live wreath using floral tape or wire. Fluff the branches around it so it’s nestled in.

Add a festive ribbon, and it’s ready for it’s door debut!

The sparkle and shimmer of the pearl and glitter paints are so pretty against the fresh greens.
