Tutorial Week: Framed Pine Cones

 
Tutorial Week: One of my fabulous readers, Jodi, sent me a link to a project inspired by Country Living’s Pine Cone Door Hanging. And needless to say, I fell in love with the concept. So here’s my twist on a CL classic. {This was a last minute addition to Tutorial Week.}

Ok, back to tutorial mode. Where was I? Oh, this would be a great project for the kiddos to help out with: they could round up the pine cones and help hot glue (with assistance!) the ribbon on. This should take you all of 5 minutes to do or so.

Supplies needed:

  •  7 Pine Cones, cleaned off (you can do more if you want)
  • Ribbon, cut into seven 18″ strips and one 6″ strip (I used 5/8″ ribbon)
  • Frame (mine is an 11″x14″)
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
 Take each pine cone and put a dot of glue on the top.
 
 And press ribbon in place. Leave about 3″ over hang. You can trim it later if you don’t like the look or want a shorter over hang.
Then arrange and stagger your pine cones so that they hang at different lengths. Determine how far you want them to hang down (measuring with your frame) and pinch the ribbon at your chosen length.
 Now take your 6″ strip of ribbon and wrap it around the ribbon and tie a knot.Then trim your ribbon as necessary. 
To hang your pine cones, hammer a pin or tiny nail through the ribbon and into the wall right below the knot. Be sure to catch all the ribbon strands with the pin/nail.You’ll probably want to arrange your pine cones a little. Mine got jumbled in the hanging process. After you have your pine cones situated, hang your frame. I found it was easier that way, than trying to redo the pine cones if I hung the frame wrong.
I just love this simple wall hanging! So simple, so gorgeous!

    I LOVE this idea! It has the 3 elements for me; quick, easy, and inexpensive! Looks gorgeous too. I've used tons of pine cones this year (made my own tree from them, knock of of one I saw in Target – posted on my blog). I think I may have to find an empty frame today!
