A front door wreath for winter is puzzling. I couldn’t decide on something that would be suitable for this cold time of year, so my door has been plain until I was inspired to make a display of pine cones hung from blue satin ribbons. I am thrilled with the result of this simple project.
The how-to is quite easy. I drilled a small hole into the end of each pine cone and then inserted a screw eye. I used eight pine cones that I picked up in North Carolina last fall. In my area of Virginia, we don’t have pines that produce cones this large. If I used cones from my area, I would have needed a lot more than eight cones.
I then threaded ribbon through the hook, varying the length, and knotted the end. When I had four cones prepared, I draped the ribbon over the 3M hanger already on my door.
I varied the ribbon length of the final four cones to make a fairly symmetrical arrangement.
I then used wider blue ribbon to make a bow to camouflage the hanger.
It even looks pretty from the inside.
Happiness is a pretty door in January!
