How to make a Pink Heart Pinecone Wreath
Learning how to make a pink heart wreath with pinecones is easier than you think. So gather your supplies, and let’s get started.
Have you started to decorate for Valentine’s Day? Well, today, I have the perfect craft project for you! I am sharing a stunning pink heart pinecone wreath that will be the envy of all your neighbors.
With just a few supplies and patience, you can quickly put together this piece of decor that will surely add charm to your porch or entryway.
Supplies needed to create a pink heart wreath.
- One heart-shaped grapevine wreath ( you could also bend curly willow to make your wreath)
- Assorted pinecones and pods
- Fresh eucalyptus
- Fresh curly willow
- Pink and white acrylic paint
- paint brush
- Glue gun
Types of pinecones you can use for your pink heart
Using a variety of pinecones will give you a more interesting look for your pink heart wreath.
I live in California, where we have several varieties of pinecones.
- Monterey Pine
- Bishop Pine
- Santa Cruz Island Pine
- White Bark Pine
- Limber Pine
- Beach Pine
- Lodgepole Pine
- Western White Pine
- Knobcone Pine
- Bristlecone Pine
- Foxtail Pine
- Four-Leaf Pinyon
And so many more. These are just a few.
Pods to add to your pink heart wreath
I picked these pods up on my daily walk. The pod on the left is a jacaranda pod. These trees are beautiful in the summer, full of purple blossoms, producing these great pods.
The pods on the right are from the cypress tree. Once you pick them and they dry, they open up.
Curly willow comes in long branches and can add a very whimsy feel to your wreath.
Directions to make your wreath
First, I attached the curly willow and some eucalyptus to the heart wreath using wire and a hot glue gun.
Cutting and attaching the pine cones
With clippers in hand, I began to cut my pinecones. My mission was to create intricate flowers; however, this was no small feat! With help from my husband and a trusty glue gun for reattaching any missing pieces, I could get what I was looking for. I will say that I found some pinecones easier to cut than others. The long skinny ones were the easiest for me to cut. You need to experiment and be sure you have sharp clippers.
Secondly, I put wire around the pine cone slice and twisted it well. Next, I wired the pinecones to the wreath one at a time. In addition, I added a small amount of hot glue behind the pinecone flower for extra security.
Finishing touches on my wreath
As beautiful as it was in its natural state, I wanted a pink heart for Valentine’s Day. This part was easy. I used pink and white acrylic paint in my craft cabinet.
First, I used the pink paint at full strength; then, I added white for a softer pink color.
In the end, I was thrilled with the results and will enjoy this wreath on my She shed door.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial; if you try it, please send me a picture at [email protected]; I would enjoy seeing your wreath.
Happy early Valentine’s Day to you all!
