Have a bunch of pine trees in your yard?  Your in luck, you can collect those pine cones to make a beautiful wreath like I have here or many other projects.  Most people also have cardboard lying around or let from packages.  Don't throw it out, it can be very useful.  Here I will show you how I used both of these materials to make this wreath.

Step 1:Gather Supplies

Step 2:Layout pine cones

Sort and layout the pine cones the way you like.  If the cardboard is too big, go ahead and cut it at this point.

Step 3:Glue the pine cones

Glue the outside row of pine cones so that they are over the edge of the cardboard just a bit.

Step 4:Add the fabric squares

After the first row is finished, glue fabric in between each pine cone. I cut the fabric into squares and fold them in half several times until it is almost a cone shape.

Step 5:Add the 2nd row

Glue the 2nd row of pine cones.  I go ahead and add the fabric squares in between them as I go on this row because it is easier since it is on the inside.

Step 6:Fill in the spaces

After all of the pine cones are on you can add a row of fabric squares in the center between the 2 rows to fill in the space and hide the cardboard.

Step 7:Add some color

Once the wreath is complete you can add whatever you like.  I added flowers to add some color.  You can also add a bow or maybe a wooden initial would look nice.  You also have the choice of changing the center out when seasons change and holidays come around.  I hope you enjoy making this wreath and enjoy having it hanging on your door.  They also make nice gifts!
