Spruce Up Your Front Door Using Pinecones & Ribbon

{Pin This}

Since this blog has taken over my life and become my passion/hobby, I no longer craft.  Thankfully, I know some pretty awesome people who DO!  I’m excited to have Amie, guest blog for me today and share a super cute craft (that she needs to come and do for me)…

Hello! My name is Amie, I am a wife of almost 6 years and a new mother to a 4 month old little girl who I adore!  I LOVE to decorate and craft and am always on the lookout for something fun and easy to make ( it helps me unwind from a busy day).  I like crafts that can be done in under an hour, because one, I’m impatient and two, I don’t always have a lot of time during the day to dedicate to crafting!

Now that the Holidays are over I feel like my house is bare… I wasn’t sure what to put up on my door so I headed over to pinterest and found a few ideas. I didn’t see exactly what I wanted, so I gathered a few ideas and made it my own!

Learn how to spruce up your front door using pinecones:

 

Supplies:

  • 6-8 pinecones (any size will work). You can buy them at Walmart, but I suggest to go outside and get some for free!
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbon of your choice (roughly 1 spool, I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby for $3.99, spa color)
  • scissors
  • A frame – optional (I bought one from local thrift shop for a few dollars and painted it black)
 

Cut your ribbon as desired length (I did mine 1 foot, 5″ long)

Put a large dot of hot glue on desired area of pinecone

Fold ribbon over to create a finished look and place it on the glue

Let dry

Repeat until all the pinecones are attached to the ribbon

Gather all the ribbon together and arrange how you would like the pinecones to hang (make sure to not hang them at all the same length to create some dimension).

Tie a large knot with all the ribbon and slip the knot over a door hanger (these can be found all over, mine is from Walmart. These typically are only a few dollars)


Pull the knot tight and cut the hanging ribbon ends on an angle, add your frame and you’re done!

This entire project cost less than $8.00

*Another decorating idea, if you don’t want to put this cute project on your front door pick a door in your home to display it on. This could add a much needed lift to a hall closet door!
