90 pine cones
You’ll need a minimum of 90 pine cones for a 12-inch wreath frame, but it is wise to pick up at least 120 total.Dec 8, 2013
Start wiring your branches together and when you get a long-ish garland (about three branches) loop it around to make a circle (or in my case a triangle and an oval.) Tie on a ribbon from your stash. That’s it. You just made a wreath for free.
Caring for Loose Greenery
Fresh greenery will last indoors for about two weeks; it will last longer outdoors in cold climates. Display greenery out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources; mist with water daily to help the cuttings last.
The pine cones will close up more tightly when they get wet. 4 – Place the pine cones on old newspapers to dry overnight. 5 – Line baking sheets with parchment or foil. Place pine cones on baking sheets and bake for several hours at 200-250 degrees Fahrenheit.
Preserving. After the pine cones have been fully dried, de-bugged and opened, you can spray them with a clear acrylic spray, polyurethane or spray varnish. It doesn’t have to be a heavy coat, but try to ensure the pine cone is fully and evenly covered (don’t miss the bottom).
