I love making wreathes
and I saw many pinecone versions
before the holidays on Pinterest-
I have a thing for cardinals-
A few Christmases ago, I started a small cardinal tree-
and since then, cardinals have brought a special meaning to my life-
Most of those wreathes were made for the holidays but
I think they are the perfect winter wreath-
And isn't there an upcoming holiday that boasts red?
So, I decided my front door needed a cardinal wreath to add to the chilly winter season!
I took a trip to the GW outlet because I knew I'd find the supplies that were needed
to create my own pinecone wreath-
Sure enough, I found a plethora of pine cones-
a wooden tray, working white lights, a globe and
a grapevine wreath with a few pinecones hanging by a wire!
All for $9.80
And a wreath with a few pine ones hanging by a wire-
I also had white plastic pine cones in my Christmas boxes
from my small bird tree-
I was set to go!
Some of the pine cones had picks attached to them already and some I wired on-
The tiny ones got a drop of hot glue-
The wreath was ready for some paint-
Although, it's much too cold to spray paint,
I did anyways!!
It dried quickly- lol
It was 20 degrees out!
Ready to be beautified with some cardinals..
Now, if only I had a red front door, ha ha ha
Only kidding Charlie!!
I hot glued the birds in no order and added the heart ribbon to
Give it a perfect Valentine look-
And that's it-
A pretty addition to the front door that
Makes me smile when I see the cardinals in the middle of winter!
Take care, gotta fly-
