Pine Cone Rosette Wreath

Just a simple idea I've been meaning to make a reality for about a year now. 
Cut off some pine cones, glue them to a grape vine wreath, and add a coat of spray paint!


It took a year because I couldn't figure out how to cut through a pine cone. Those things are tough!! I finally borrowed a friend's miter saw. If anyone else knows a secret for getting through a pine cone I'd be happy to hear it! :o)

  3. That wreath is beautiful! So simple yet exquisite.

    I've been a reader for a long time and I've been meaning to tell you that your blog was the very first craft/sewing blog I stumbled across, and I can't tell you how thankful I am for it and you. I've since found many more blogs that I love, through yours, but my heart does a little jig every time I see an update from you on my google reader. I just thought it was time to tell you how thankful I am for you, your blog and the wonderful influence you have had on me. Thank You!

  11. So pretty and so you! I have a bunch of pine cones that are big like this and hard to make a wreath out of. I never thought to cut them though! Great idea! I wonder if tin snips or tough garden shears might work???

  15. I love this! I always love your posts and the less frequent posting seems like such a more realistic way to do a craft blog while keeping the rest of life in balance (doing one at all of course sounds like way to much work for me, but I am glad other people are willing to share their gifts). Thanks for the post and I definitely think I will be making this one.

  29. OMG YOU're BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm SO happy!!

    I found you AFTER you stopped blogging (during the summer) and have been so disappointed every since. I swear I went through your entire blog, so inspired, so amazed, so... SAD, that you weren't blogging anymore. So to see you back, even once and a while, is AMAZING! YA!!

    Those pine cones ARE tough, sheesh!
