Just a few basic craft supplies like floral wire and artificial snow transformed ordinary store-bought pinecones into a breathtaking garland fit for any holiday mantel.

Supplies and Materials for This Project

Step-by-Step Tutorial

  1. Carefully open the mini pinecone picks and spread out the wired stems so they are untangled and lying flat.
  2. The next step is to lay one pick on your work surface, then take another pick and position it so the wired stems overlap on the bottom portion.
  3. Use the brown floral wire to securely wrap the two picks together where the stems overlap.
  4. Continue laying picks end-to-end, ensuring the wires overlap. Secure each joint by wrapping wire around the stems.
  5. Once all picks are connected in a garland style, use faux snow spray to generously coat the pinecones. Allow to dry completely.
  6. Fluff and shape the garland, then hang proudly in your desired location! No other embellishments are needed.
