Pinecone Garland Tutorial | Annapolis and Co.

Post from my recipe contributor: Mary Beth Johnson is a photographer and blogger with a passion for finding beauty in unexpected places and celebrating the everyday. Originally from the east coast, she now lives in Oklahoma with her husband and three children (dubbed "schooners") and writes her lifestyle blog, Annapolis & Company, from a desk full of fingerprints and walls scattered with imperfect artwork.


Hi all! I don't know about you, but now that I'm a mum I crave simple and easy projects that can be signed and sealed in one nap time. Especially Christmas ones. I sat down one afternoon with a few simple "ingredients" and created this versatile garland in about 15 minutes. It is earthy and neutral and would look pretty hung or draped somewhere in my house, or sprawled out as a table runner for our Christmas breakfast. If that sounds good to you too, join me!

WHAT YOU'LL NEED: Glue Gun, Scissors, Twine, Evergreen Sprigs, and Wreath Pinecones {They already have wire attached, and I found a box of them at Target. If you are blessed to have access to free pinecones, do it!!!}

STEP FIVE: Attach sprigs of evergreen with hot glue. I found it best to attach at the back of the wrapped wire from the pinecone. And voila! You're all done! Did you time it? Wasn't that fast?
