DIY Simple Pine Cone Garland

About a week ago I hung my fall pine cone garlands outside in hopes to spur on the Autumn chill. It seems to have worked, and today I managed to wear a scarf without passing out!

I made these garlands about 6 years ago, and still hang them every year. Because they are so easy and cute I thought I’d share a quick tutorial so you can make your own (if you so wish)!


All you’ll need is some ribbon, twine, and pine cones:


Then, just tie a knot around the base of the pine cone with the ribbon.

Last, tie that ribbon onto a longer piece of twine and ta dah, you’re done!

The more you add, the fuller your garland will be. It’s also fun to add other bits of nature, try twigs or large acorns.

    Great idea – so simple! We collected loads of pine cones last year to make a wreath with, think we’ll try this next!

    I was wondering if I could find out what type of plant you have planted in front of your boxwoods? I love the color contrast between the two and have a very similar bed out in front of my home. It looks like lambs ear but I can’t tell. Thank you.
