What better way to infuse the holiday spirit into your home than with a decorative pinecone display?


  • Pinecones
  • Wire hanger
  • Pony beads
  • Hot glue
  • Ribbons (or other fabric)
  • Spray paint (optional)


  1. Bend and shape the wire hanger to form a ring with the hook at the top.
  2. Use hot glue to adhere the beads to the base of the pinecones.
  3. String the pinecones onto the wire hanger, through the beads. Position the pinecones to form a wreath shape, being careful to close any gaps between beads and pinecones.
  4. After you have positioned the pinecones to your liking, you can spray paint them in white or green.
  5. Use a ribbon or other fabric to tie a cute bow. Your wreath is ready to hang!

Recyclables Wreath

Sometimes we are overwhelmed with too many holidays greeting cards. Instead of tossing them away, recycle them into this charming wreath!


  • Greeting cards
  • Hot glue/gun
  • Styrofoam wreath, 10”
  • Toothpicks


  1. Draw or trace holly shapes on the greeting cards; cut the shapes out.
  2. Use the hot glue gun to adhere toothpicks to the backs of the holly leaves. This will form a 1” base, or stem.
  3. Insert the holly leaves into the Styrofoam wreath, using the toothpick “stems.” Continue around the wreath, being sure to overlap the leaves for a clean, tailored look.
