Wire Wreath Forms - Choose your favorite shape of wire wreath form to use as the base of your Pinecone Wreath

Pinecones can be arranged within the wire form and oftentimes, wire to connect your pinecones to a wreath won't even be necessary so it's super easy to make your wreath!

Place a pine cone inside of the inside of your wreath frame, wrap a piece of wire around it and the frame and secure. Continue working around from the inside out.

Fill in any small gaps with dried berries, fruit picks, dried leaves, greenery or small bows. Finish your wreath off with a big
