I have been saving small pine cones from a neighbors tree for several years. I now have a big bucket of these little pine cones and the tree has been cut down.
This year I decided to make a small wreath. I began by gluing a brown colored scrapbook paper to the front side of a piece of white foam core board.
After the glue was dry I traced a large and a smaller plate onto the brown paper and cut it out with a sharp cutter.
Once my form was cut out I began adding the small pine cones with hot glue.
When I had all the pine cones glued to the form I used some of my shipping paper and twisted it into a rope that I glued to the inside and outside edges.
This completely covered the white foam core edges.

Next I lightly brushed on some faux snow to the edges of the pine cones for a snowy effect.
To the bottom center I added a natural colored little bottle brush tree and added more snow around the base.
Then I added a bit of vintage lace to the top to act as a hanger. I also glued a little silver bling to the tree.
