Make a Pine Cone, Gold and Star Garland

An easy, festive garland for the mantel or Christmas tree.
Twine, Pine-cones with screws in the top, gold bulbs and stars.


While my family and I watched Home Alone 2 last night - I put together this simple garland.
1- dollar store gold bulbs 2- pine cones with a screw in each 3- stars from tassels
I used twine from the dollar store to tie these three items together at about 4 inches apart.
(do you like Squidward's eyes peaking at us?)

At the end of our mantel I attached the garland to little hooks.
(this is why I love my own rustic mantel - I don't worry about making little holes in it)
The real beauty here is that we actually have a flame in our fireplace.
(our fireplace was fixed this week - yay!)
So warm and cozy!
Simple - using affordable decor and natural elements. 
Baby...it's cold outside today!

I was wondering how to hang pinecones, thanks for these photos...also is that SpongeBob I see on the TV?
I love that guy, Patrick too. It's been awhile since they've been on our screen.

I love your pine cone garland. I had hoped to get out and get some pine cones picked up from under our trees but not sure I will make it now. We have a bit of snow but it is SOOO COLD! I love the way your garland looks on your fireplace. Beautiful! xo Diana
