PINE CONE WREATH

Call me a sappy, sentimental fool.  I decided to make my daughter (and son-in-law) a pine cone wreath from the pine cones and greenery we used at their wedding.  I thought it might be a nice keepsake and it could be fun to see it celebrated year after year just like their wedding anniversary.  Like I said, I'm a sucker for mementos. 
I purchased a grapevine wreath at Michael's at 60% off; I love a good sale!  I also picked up the snowman ornament for 50% off.  The rest of the goodies were all from the wedding.
 
The project was just a matter of arranging the pine cones and greenery and gluing them into place.  I would place two to three here and there, balancing the look of the arrangement as I made my way around the circumference.  I was just planning to do a little corner of it last night and I found I couldn't stop.  The whole thing took me just about an hour!  Now if we could get a little bit of snow around here it would really start to feel like the holidays.  Happy Christmas everyone!
