Large Bleached Pine Cone Wreath
Update: 01/31/24: This is an early blog post from when I was selling on Etsy. I no longer sell on Etsy but if you are interested in making a pine cone wreath please visit this page or this one. Always feel free to contact me with any questions.
This is a beautiful pine cone wreath that measures approximately 22-24" in diameter. The wreath is on a 18" wire frame although a smaller wreath on a 12" frame can also be produced. The pine cones are from Eastern White Pine trees and are collected by hand, dried and cleaned, and then bleached to lighten their color. If the natural darker look is preferred this can also be made on either frame size. Each pine cone is individually wired onto the wreath frame. If more color is desired a bow, berries, or other adornment can be added. Display in a sheltered area is recommended as moisture will cause the pine cones to close.
If you prefer a colored wreath, the cones can be spray painted in any color combination to match any room, holiday, or sports team.
In 2016, my family and I moved from the New York City area to small town Wisconsin. Our move, this website and blog (and our previous Etsy store) is the result of our desire over the past several years to simplify our lives, increase our quality of life, reconnect with nature, and enjoy a more self-sufficient life. I grew up as a country kid in central Pennsylvania working on my grandfather's fruit farm and as a corn "de-tassler" at a local seed farm. My background is in biology where my love of nature originated. I am a former research scientist and professor and have now transitioned to a part-time stay-at-home mom, self-employed tutor, and small business owner. Thank you for taking the time to check out my site.
