For the second installment in my 12 Days of Christmas series, I’ve put together a festive pinecone garland that can look good anytime of year. I plan on keeping mine up year round because I just love how rustic it looks, but you could always add some holly and pine branches to make it a little more festive. Or even give it a frosted look with some random patches of white paint and switch them out for regular pinecones after the holidays. It’s just so versatile! Plus, since these pinecones are originally meant for potpourri, you’re greeted with the nicest whiff of cinnamon every time you enter or exit the room.
What You’ll Need:
- eye hooks
- jute string
First clip the little nub off the center of the pinecone. This is where we’ll screw in the hooks.
Now screw in the hook to the top center of the pinecone. I had to hold the pinecone with a towel so it didn’t totally kill my fingers. It doesn’t have to screw all the way in. Just enough to secure the string around it.
Tie the string around each hook and hang it where you like! I spaced the pinecones 16 inches apart and use command strips to hang it, and it works perfectly. And voila, there you have a yummy smelling, homey entryway!
