Craft of the Week: Pine and Willow Wreath 3.0

My one dollar willow wreath has been converted again, this time for the Christmas holiday. Previously the wreath was decked with pumpkins. And before that, it was a green ribboned wreath (as seen in this slideshow).

Materials that were used (or reused) for this 3.0 version:
  • Willow wreath
  • Green cotton cloth (from a shirt--see my pumpkin wreath tutorial for details)
  • Safety pins
  • Thin beading wire
  • School glue
  • Pine cones
  • Long pine needles

How I made it:

1. I left the green cloth wrapped around the wreath but took off the pumpkins.
2. Before the snow came, I collected pine cones and a fallen pine branch.
3. I wired and glued the pine cones onto the bottom of the wreath.
4. Then I inserted clumps of pine needles behind the cloth "ribbon."

The result was a simple, virtually cost-free pine wreath for our front door. For more creative ideas, check out:
