pinecone door hanger {tutorial}



You guys know I'm all about the rustic made chic. So when I saw this pine cone door hanger by Sweet Paul, I knew I had to create one of my own. Considering the number of pine trees in my back yard and the minimum amount of supplies it takes to make this little lovie, I think I have a total of $6 invested in this project. Simple, quick, cheap. Perfect! (that's what she said?)

Materials:
- 8 well-shaped pine cones
- 8 pieces of ribbon, each 2 ft in length
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- scissors




1. If you're using a thick ribbon (like I am), go ahead and cut the corners off one edge of length so you have an end that's more suited to fit the top of your pine cone.




2. Using a generous amount of glue, attach the trimmed ribbon end to the top of the pine cone. Make sure to hold the ribbon in place until the glue is dry. (Careful, its called a HOT glue gun for a reason)




Once you have all eight pine cones attached to a ribbon, arrange the pine cones by length. This definitely doesn't have to be perfect.
Come down about two inches from the top and tie all of the ribbons together with a knot. Trim excess ribbon from the top end.
Hang on the door and arrange pine cones where you'd like them. Now sit back and enjoy the fall!
