The use of pumpkins and pine cones in today’s challenge party was a lovely way to say hello to fall on its first official day! Katie is here to share her tutorial for the pine cone wreath chandeliers below…
14” grapevine wreath, ribbon of choice for hanging, brown hemp string, different size pine cones, grapevine wire, orange silk mums.
- Cut two long strips of ribbon to hang the chandelier from and tie ribbon around each side of the wreath crossing the two pieces of ribbon.
- To make pine cone garland for hanging cut strips in differing sizes of brown hemp ribbon.
- Take the hemp and tie around the end of each pine cone and secure with a knot, use the glue gun to secure the placement of your hemp. Use about 4-7 pine cones for each strand of garland. After the garland is secure you will tie one end of the pine cone garland to the bottom of the grapevine wreath.
- For the orange mum garland, I used grapevine wire cut about 12 inches long and used the orange flowers that were taken off of their stems. I then used a glue gun to secure the back of the mums onto the grapevine wire making it into one long strand. (used about 6-7 mums per strand)
- Feed the end of the wire grapevine onto the bottom of the wreath and place them in between every few strands of pine cones.
- Hang the chandelier and adjust the placement of all of the hanging garlands and VOILA you will have a beautiful fall chandelier for your home or for your next event.
