Scented Pine Cone Wreath

This is the time of year when I do a lot more crafting than usual.  

Once I smell the cinnamon scent of the holiday season my mind starts thinking up projects.

Such was the case with my scented pine cone wreath:

Yep, the little bags of scented pine cones were at the front of the craft store when I was there and I’m a total sucker for them.

I originally thought I would glue them to a flat, round wreath form.

Then I realized that I would need another bag of pine cones to help fill in some little gaps, so I searched the house for things I already had.

I decided to use an old black picture frame.  It wouldn’t need so many pine cones and I wouldn’t have to paint it to help hide the gaps.

Then it was as easy as gluing the pine cones to the frame with hot glue.  Easy peasy.

I glued pine cones to the front and to the sides of the little frame.  In no time, my frame was all filled up and I added a green silk bow.

I figure I can use this little wreath for both fall and Christmas.  Love that!

I hung it in my dining room so the cinnamon smell is near my front door.

    Oh, I am a real sucker for those scented pinecones, too! I almost fell for it the other day but resisted……today, who knows! I like the rectangular shaped wreath for a change.
