Pine Cone Door Decoration
A front door wreath for winter can be puzzling. I have made many wreaths for spring, summer, and fall, but not so many for winter. An easy idea that I came up with to decorate my door for winter is a Pine Cone Door Decoration.
Pine Cone Door Decoration
Pine cones hang from ribbons of varying lengths from a 3M door hanger that stays on our door year round.
The pine cones that I used for this project are ones that I collected in North Carolina. In my area of Virginia I have not run across any pines that produce cones this large. Mr. SP has gotten used to me collecting pine cones when we are traveling.

This idea could also be used for Christmas or Valentine’s Day with red ribbon or green ribbon for St. Patrick’s Day.
This will grace my door during January and in February I’ll switch it to a Valentine’s Day wreath. I’m hoping that we soon will get some snow so that I can see how this looks on our door with snow as a contrast.

What a perfectly lovely pine cone decor for your front door! Love it.
That is such a great idea to perk things up after the holidays! Love the blue ribbon!
I love it! I still need to take down our wreath from the holidays! This is perfect!
You did a beautiful job!
Simply….lovely! I created the same pinecone hanger but I used a plaid ribbon. I like your wintery blue.
Great idea – I may have to try that next holiday season on the mailbox.
Hope you’ll come see the picture wall I helped DD2 create in her home.
Love it! I would be honored to have you add it to my blog party

This is a darling and creative idea. It is such a welcome change to the “wreath on the door” look. Thanks for showing us how you created this stunning look! ~Susie
So simple but yet elegant at the same time. Love it!
Very cute indeed!
When we just moved in September, I THREW OUT two tall popcorn tins FULL of large pine cones like that! I was downsizing and they just had to go – – –
Well, I didn’t just throw them away, I gave them to a friend who has an antique shop, so she could sell them in her shop in the tin.
I think I’d like enough of them back to make something like that for our front door!
Love it girl! This is perfect for the colder months! And love the blue satin ribbon.
Hi Paula, What a great idea for something different on a door after Christmas! Love it!
I need to follow your fitness Fridays. I have got to start doing something before I get fat! I have never been that into exersizing but I think now is the time!
Thanks for the inspiration! Kristen
The pine cones are a great alternative to a wreath. Inexpensive and easy to make – the perfect kind of project! 🙂
Great little project for the grandkids too! I really love it!
Great idea. This is something I might use to get rid of all those scented pinecones leftover from Christmas.
That’s really pretty Paula!
Looks great,and the blue ribbon says winter to me. I love the idea of using natural things when you can. I’m visiting by way of Met Monday, come see me sometime.
Fun idea, it turned out great:@)
I love it! What a great idea! We have pinecones like that all over the place around here! Carla
That is gorgeous! I never would’ve thought to use pine cones hanging like that. I love it and the blue ribbon you picked is very pretty too!
Paula, what a great idea…simple yet so pretty on the front door. You amaze me girl!
What a beautiful, simple, elegant, creative idea. We don’t have large pine cones here either, but I sure want to find some now. Just perfect!
Very cute, I love how you used a bright blue ribbon too!
Paula, this is adorable! What a great idea–it’s just right for the season and so cheerful! Thanks for sharing your good idea with us!
How cute! And I love the color of the ribbon!!!
I love it! So pretty and wintery!

Simply cute! After our ice storm last week we had a few big branches of pine tree limbs break and has some rather large pine cones. I might have to make one for my back door. I have three doors and I only have a wreath on the front.
Really pretty. The screws are a great idea. Love the blue ribbon… so cheery!
Hello fellow Virginian! I am in the southwest corner of the state. About 30 minutes from the West Virginia border, 45 minutes from the Kentucky border, and about an hour from the Tennessee border. Love your pine cone “wreath”. I may have to borrow this idea!
looks so pretty with the blue ribbon-i’ll have to remember this next year and have the kids gather pinecones for me 🙂
That looks great! Love the blue 🙂
I love this, Paula, b/c it’s so different than a lot of the other front door decorations that I’ve seen here and there! The ribbon is the perfect touch for winter–a nice pop of color. 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up to my party. 🙂
Those are so beautiful!!!! I love your creative solution! 😀
Winter can be tough to do front door decorations with…I went ahead and put up a Valentine themed door heart. 😀
Love your idea though…I love the blue with the natural pine cones combined! Very pretty!
Building Home with Him,
It’s a treat to have a door decoration after Christmas and before Valentine or Mardi Gras. Thank you for the photos.
Loved the idea so much I copied it. My pinecones are so small – but Im going to gather up the large ones when they fall and save them.
I love your ideas.
I love this idea. I have a whole bag of those beautiful, large Pine Cones that I gathered at my Sister-in-law’s house in North Carolina. I have some in a basket in the house but didn’t know what to do with the rest and I wasn’t going to throw them away! LOL! I do have a question, do you shellac or spray a preservative on the cones before drilling in to them? They look a bit shiny in the pic.
Thanks and Happy New Year!
I did not spray them with anything but you certainly could if you want to do that. They do look shiny in my pictures but I used them as found. Let me know if you make one for your home!
Such a great winter wreath/door hanging… great tutorial, too! Pinned!
Thank you, Julie!
That is really gorgeous! The color of the ribbon really makes a dramatic statement. And I do love pine cones!
Such a pretty winter door hanger. I really like to have something pretty after Christmas!
Happy New Year,
Thank you, Kippi! Every time I drive up to my house and see those pine cones hanging on my door, it makes me happy.
I love the simplicity of this project. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. Thank you for sharing at Party In Your PJ’s!
Timeless. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you! Winter wreaths are so much harder than any other season. This did the trick.
Paula, this is so pretty!! Those cones are huge! Thanks for sharing 😊
Thank you so much, Cindy. I picked the cones up in North Carolina.
This is so simple and elegant!
I would not have thought of those little hooks!
