I love a nice pine cone wreath and with fall just around the corner I knew I needed to start thinking about some ways to really give my front door a personality befitting of the autumn season.
Of course pine cones are used in Christmas decorations but never underestimate the power of this rustic beauty during the colorful months of autumn.
A foam wreath will just not hold the weight of pine cones nor will it properly keep its shape so I decided upon a grapevine wreath. It will not only hold the weight of the cones but it will also blend well if there are a few little spaces here and there that may show gaps. My favorite is Cinnamon scented cones. About 2 bags of these delightfully smelling mini cones will do the trick.A glue gun is a must have for this project. I started filling in the middle row around the wreath with the larger sized pine cones gluing them along firmly as I went. Next, I used the smaller sized cones to fill in the tops and bottoms of the wreath.
So begins my little love affair with pine cone wreaths. I started seeking out some other creative designs to add to my wish list and you will be amazed at what I found.

This wreath really says fall is here. If you have pine trees near your home they will give you a wealth of cute little or even large cones to work with. Little sprigs of greenery and berries add some color to this design. A sweet orange ribbon tops it all off.
Another charming wreath idea that caught my eye. Adding bits of evergreen gives it a refreshing look and smell.
Add some colorful zest to your pine cone wreath with plastic fruit. It does not only work well on your door. Try hanging it on your porch banisters and drape it with some evergreen garland to add some flair.

What a charming and inviting wreath. Mix up your pine cones with items such as burlap ribbon which will never lead you astray when you are decorating rustic style. I think the mixture of cute little white pumpkins add even more creativity and uniqueness to this wreath design.
