Shape of the tree or the wreath will depend upon. Even these are available in craft shops. The other bits and pieces that you need to have before you take up pine cone crafts are thin, flexible wire and thin wooden sticks, a sturdy cement and don't disregard a pair of pliers-type wire cutters.
Making pine cone crafts
The first step is to clean the pine cones (can use a blow dryer). Then for wiring, cut out a wire according to the size of the pinecone. String the wire through the scales so that it gets wrapped up around the center. Entwine the wire and also leave it a few inches for barbing the Styrofoam in it. Remember a wooden stick at the back of the cone in case you are using a large cone. Now drape the wire around the stick and pierce the Styrofoam with the stick. Having done these it's the time to place all the pine cones on the Styrofoam.
A wreath as a wonderful token of Christmas
Pine cone crafts will bring a smile to the lips of your friend. A wreath will simply be an invincible Christmas gift. To make a wreath you have to place the larger cones first. You can insert small cones and even colorful balls in between the larger ones. Dash them with glitters, with nail polishes at the tips of the pine cone. Now, it's time to surprise the recipients.
Pine cone crafts, exhaust your fancy
