Painted Pinecone Family Wreath

Gather pinecones on your next nature walk to make into a family wreath. Each family member chooses a pinecone and paints it with flat paint in colors of the season, or select colors that represent the personalities of different family members . A simple loop tied to the top of each pinecone allows a ribbon to be strung through a painted embroidery hoop and hung on a door as a wreath. Family members can write their names on the ribbon attached to their pinecone. A simple and easy, collaborative project for family members of all ages and abilities that makes a cheerful and welcoming wreath when completed.
