How do you make a small pine cone wreath?
Start on the inside of your wreath with smaller pinecones and hot glue them into place. If you pick the little knob off the bottom of the pinecone first it will lay flatter and be easier to glue. After applying the glue make sure to press the pinecone into the wreath form for a few seconds to insure it will stick!
How do you get pine cones to flower?
- Make sure that your pine cones are clean and dry.
- The bottom of the pinecone will be the flower, so snap off all of the pieces from the top of the pinecone about half way down.

Start the wreath by taking a few different boughs of greenery and bunching them together at the base of the branch. Take the bundle, and place it against the wreath form.
