I’ve constantly got the itch to change up our decor. And I love to create.
So the marriage of the two things works well for me.
This year, I decided to add a little pinecone wreath to our front porch. Pinecones are readily available in my backyard (yay for free decor items!), and cardboard boxes abound in my life (more free items!), thanks to co-owning a retail shop.
This DIY took only a few minutes to do, and cost less than a dollar – my only out of pocket expenses were for the ribbon (which I already had on hand) and the hot glue sticks. And I loved how it turned out! Next time, I may just have to create a larger version for over our mantle. Since I know that I’m going to get the itch to create again with each of the changing seasons.
I simply gathered the pinecones, traced a circle with a bowl, cut it out, and glued the pinecones on in three layers, covering all the cardboard. Then the ribbon went on top. As they say, easy peasy lemon squeezy. In just a few minutes time, my front porch was updated with something fun and new that didn’t effect my pocket book or blow my budget (yay – my husband is going to love that!). Stay tuned, since I’m sure I’ll have something up my sleeve for the winter season.
