Pinecone Door Arrangement

What do you have on your front door?  I have a few cutesy seasonal things but nothing to get excited about. I saw this cluster/wreath on Pinterest and decided I could make this pinecone door arrangement myself!

I bought the wooden initial W from a craft store (with my 50% coupon, of course, and and extra 15% off for teachers), and it cost less than $1. I also had the gold spray paint on hand.

The hardest part? Finding the pinecones. I searched all over the neighborhood and even sent my kids out looking for them. Could only find six that were relatively the same size. Who would believe the pinecone is NC’s state tree?

The striped glitter ribbon was from my stash (see my scrapbook room post for more of my obsession collection).

The brown ribbon was taken off the programs we had left over from my daughter’s wedding.

I used a mini glue gun to attach the pine cones to the ribbon and the ribbon to the monogram.

I love this simple project and it makes me happy when I come through the front door.

  1. Love it!

    I’m trying to pretend it’s still summer. Haven’t wanted to think about Fall Decorating yet. :)

    Our “summer” weather up here in the Pacific NW really runs from July thru September. So, we enjoy the sunshine whenever we can get it.

    Loving your “new” blog.

    Laurel :)

  2. What a great idea….yours looks beautiful.

  3. I love that this is outside of the traditional round wreath for the door. So cute! I too need to go look for pinecones but thus far the only ones I have found are pretty old.

    If you get a chance I would love for you to come link up your tutorial at my Fall Edition Pin Party.

  4. I love the pinecones and I love that it isn’t just a wreath! Thanks!

  6. I’m with you, done with summer and so glad for Fall! Your door arrangement came out so pretty! I also like it’s not the traditional round or square shape. I found a show bag of pinecones last year at GW, so now I have plenty to use. Very pretty wreath! To answer your question I don’t have anything on my front door, got to get moving! Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!

    • Thanks for stopping by! For some reason I can’t ever figure out what I want for the front door so I did something different. Yeah for Pinterest ideas!

  7. I really love that pine cone door arrangement! I have a bunch of ribbon and a bunch of pine cones that need to be used, and now I know what to do with them. Great job!

  8. Cute, I really must try do this, Pine cones are all over our neighborhood :)

  9. Beautiful, pinning!

  10. This is adorable. I love pinecones. TFS!!! Stopping by from TCB’s linky party.

  15. What a great idea for Fall! I am hosting an “It’s Fall Y’all ~ Linky Party” …. I would like to invite you to share this project, and other Fall related projects/recipes, you may have. All links will be pinned to a board dedicated to the party. You can find the party at Love Bakes Good Cakes, Hope to see you there!

  16. Marty! What a stunning arrangement! Love it. Thanks so much for leaving me a comment on my little chalkboar placecards. That made my day. I am off to pin your pinecones now. xoxo Malia

    • Thank YOU! I loved your placecards. So very creative. I’m not original at all but I can make crafty things from everybody else’s ideas! Keep up the good work and have a blessed day!

  17. I really like this! Our last name starts with an O and it looks… odd to have a monogram O inside a round wreath. I will have to try this out. Thanks for the great Idea.

  18. Marty, this is so warm and inviting. I love pinecones. You are a STAR today at I Gotta Create! You’ve got your own spotlight Friday Feature. Thanks so much for linking up.

  23. What a simple but lovely project!

    I’ve been on the lookout for large pinecones in our area–we too are in NC!–but so far I’ve only found one extra-large one. Lots and lots of little ones!
