Mini Pinecone Wreath-Mason Jar Lids


Are you looking for a centerpiece idea for your holiday table or just a little something to hang on an inside window?   I have a great ideas to share with you today that will take care of both of those problems for you!

I looked all around my house for something that would work for a mini wreath.  These three mason jar rings were perfect!

I started this project by giving the rings a light coat of brown spray paint to give them a woodsy look.  In hindsight I think the silver would have actually looked just fine.  I guess it depends on the look you are going for.


I then started hot gluing the smallest pinecones from my collection onto the ring.

This is what they will look like once all the pinecones are added.

I then decided that I wanted to add a snowy look to the wreaths.  I sprayed them with this Santa Snow that I found at my local box store.

This is what they looked like after one coat.  Spray very lightly or it will just look like a white glob.  I also snipped off some fake red berries and hot glued them on as well.

And that is it!   I wrapped some ric-rac around the wreaths and nailed the trim to the window.  Now, as I said, the plan was to hang them on my kitchen window.  However, I forgot to purchase something to attach them to the window.  So, I decided to showcase them on this repurposed window I have hanging in my eating nook.  This picture looked a little boring to me, so I decided to spray some snow all over the back to fancy it up a bit. :)

Here it is.  I still think this picture is needing something.  You could hand a bigger pinecone from the other window panes????  That would look cute.  You get the idea.

I also thought these little guys would make cute little candle holders!  I would recommend using taller candles for this to decrease the chance of the pinecones catching on fire.  (unless your looking for a little excitement at your Christmas party this year!)
