Make an all season twig pine cone Christmas garland for free!
Christmas decorating has been on my mind lately. Coming up with fresh, new ideas takes a little forethought, so the best thing to do is really get off the computer and play. Well, for me anyway.
Desiring a new garland for the fireplace, I snooped around outside and came up with how to make an all season twig pine cone Christmas garland for free! In under 2 hours.
However this garland is sort of a part 2 of the original twig garland HERE.
And it turned out so rustically cute!
Gathering twigs and pine cones
The twigs are from a grapevine near my shed that’s just lost all its leaves. I simply broke the branches at their natural joins, and threw them in a basket. Done!
The pine cones were gathered from one of my daily walks.
Here’s how I did it!

Make an all season twig pine cone
Christmas garland for free!
Craft wood branches or scavenged from outdoors (I used grapevines)
2 hours of Survivor
How – to
2. Finding the middle of the string, place a twig in the centre, then knot it in place. Add a 2nd knot for insurance.
3. Continue with twig / double knot / twig / double knot, etc.
4. Tie in a pine cone between every 7 twigs.
5. Once you run out of string, triple knot the end, then start another garland.
6. Tie the small garlands into one big one.
The new twig pine cone garland!
The twig and pinecone garland is VERY rustic, but that’s what I love about it most!
I threw on 2 hours of PVR’ed Survivor and kinda forgot about what I was doing. Perfection.
The twig pinecone Christmas garland kind of has a Christmas / seasonal vibe to it, but I think it could also be deemed a winter thing too.
Or a no season in particular thing. Just a woodsy, rustic, twiggy garland that can be hung anywhere anytime!
The twig pinecone Christmas garland also landed on my fireplace for Christmas!
Love a fun, creative project that I can make while watching my fav shows… think you’ll make one for Christmas decorating this year?
