Instead of the traditional wreath I usually hang on my door each year, I decided to make a wreath that would not scatter pine needles as it dried. I took several pine cones and attached them to satin ribbons. I used colors that went with my exterior decor (oatmeal and chocolate) as well as a a reddish (merlot) one that complimented the colors and gave me a longer display season. I glued small silver beads to several of the pine cones to add a bit of sparkle. I’m not completely happy with the out turn. I think I need to add a little something to fill it out… but I need to think on it for a while. I couldn’t get a good picture due to the poor lighting. What do you think?
