Pretty Pinecone Wreath 
This wreath adds subtle holiday color to any room. Hot-glue pinecones to a wreath form, starting at the outside and working around the wreath toward the center. Wire evergreen sprigs to the bottom of the wreath, and hot-glue a simple red bow to the bottom center for a simple touch.

Pinecone Wreath with Cardinals and Ornaments 
This pinecone wreath will sparkle and pop with color after a few simple additions. To make, coat a store-bought pinecone wreath with gray spray paint. Spray with spray snow, then silver glitter, allowing drying time between coats. Arrange three cardinal figurines and nine round red ornaments among the pinecones, adhering with hot glue to keep them in place.







How To Make A Christmas Wreath
Not only are wreaths SUPER EASY to make, they are inexpensive to produce as well. Especially if you live in an area with a lot of pine or cedar trees.
Here are directions on how to make a Christmas Wreath:

 Step 1: Go outside and cut a few branches off a tree. I chose to took clippings from a Leland Cypress tree growing in my front yard. Also, if you have a holly bush nearby, clip a few sprigs off that too. You will also need a wreath form and some fine gardening wire {Home Depot or Michael’s Craft Store will have this}.

 Step 2: Secure garden wire to wreath form by simply tying a knot.

 Step 3: Place 2-3 sprigs on the wreath form and wrap the garden wire around the base of the springs to secure the greens.

 Step 4: Repeat step 3 until you have successfully covered the entire form with greens.

 Step 5: Your wreath should look something like this. I am not going to say it should look EXACTLY like this because artist freedom is encouraged.

Step 6: Carefully trim the base of 3 sprigs of Holly.

 Step 7: Insert Holly pieces beneath the wreath greens and into the wreath form if possible.

Step 8: Pull an ornament off your Christmas tree and secure it {using a small piece of garden wire} to the top portion of your wreath.
