Pine Cone Fireplace Garland (Part 2)

Here we are: Part 2 and my finished fireplace garland. I started this on November 1st and four days later, I am able to show you the result of 350 pine cones and 3 metres of coir rope.

I love the look and it really is so simple to make. If you wanted to make your own, start collecting your pine cones asap and, as a good reminder, collect one for every day of the year.

Here is a close-up of the cones which are wired with basic floristry wire and simply threaded on by the easy-to-make loop. For the ease of demonstration, I have separated the cones to show the loops.

It took over two hours to wire all the cones and another hour to thread them on but it was fun and I watched TV whilst doing it.

There was the creative pleasure in knowing that the cones I wired can be brought out season after season. I have made something which can be used for years.

I hope you enjoyed this and please try at making your own. My blog-makes are easy as I want people to be able to follow them and have fun doing it. Where else can you have such satisfaction with 300-350 pine cones and a few hours?

Here is the link to the first post and the photos with the wiring technique.

Please leave a comment if you do make your own.

Have a lovely weekend and go pine cone collecting!
