Make a Pine Cone Wreath for Halloween
#TigerStrypesBlog #Halloween #Craft
I can’t believe that it’s already October. Time is flying by, and I haven’t really gotten in the mood to decorate for Fall yet. Halloween is just a few weeks away, and obviously the local stores didn’t get that memo, since they are already stocked for Christmas!! Goodness, it keeps getting earlier, and earlier every year.
I saw a craft like this on Craftaholics Anonymous and thought it would be fun to make. Living in the mountains, we always have a bunch of pine cones laying around, and this is a great way to use some of them up. Of course, when I recently decided to make this, there weren’t many out in the yard. 😛 I found enough to make it work, though, and love it!
I sure hope that you like the tutorial, and pray that you have a blessed day!
Please be sure to comment, and share this craft on your social media channels – thanks so much!!

Instructions for the Halloween Pine Cone Wreath:
Start by finding some pine cones in the yard, or buying some at the store. If you get them out of the yard, be sure to either spray them for bugs, run them in a super low oven for awhile or let them sit out in the sun to clean them out. Using a glue gun, attach the pine cones all the way around the wreath frame. Be sure to cover up all of the underlying metal, so it doesn’t show through.
Once you have the wreath looking like you want it, take it outside and go over it with a spray paint of the color that you wish. I thought a neon green would look great, but you could do any color that you like.
Let the wreath sit for a few hours to dry completely.
Once it’s dry, you can use a glue gun to attach the eyes (that I made out of dollar store golf balls and a permanent marker).
I then made a set of teeth, using some felt and my Cricut Maker. You could make these look however you want, and also add a bowtie, hat or some accessory for added bling!
Now, you can just hang it wherever you wish, and let it bring smiles to those that visit.
What do you think? I hope you like it! Please take a minute to leave me a comment on what you would like to create, and maybe if you have any tips on how to do it different, or better!
Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thanks!!

Pine Cone Wreath is such a great idea. I never thought of this

I miss craft days with my son, now that he’s older. I hope you all enjoy the time!
This made me giggle it’s so cute! And we have a lot of pinecones in our yard so what an inexpensive craft!
It was easy and fun to make! I love using stuff up that would just get tossed.
You are so creative! This wreath is stunning, and yet you managed to use such a simple material for it.
I’m always one that loves to upcycle. It felt better to use the pine cones for a craft, instead of trash. 🙂
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this especially the color green! I would have never thought of painting it.
Thank you! I wanted to make sure that the green stood out. This shade sure did! 🙂

We usually have about 3 kids, so hopefully they like it! ha/ha
I love that you have all those cool pinecones, within easy reach. Just walk outside! You did a great job on this fun spooky season craft!
There is usually so many more on the ground! Well, when more fall, I’ll make another one! 🙂
This is so cute! I love the golf ball eyes!!
Thanks, Heidi! I wanted ping pong balls, but the dollar store didn’t have any! ha/ha
