My Ballard Inspired Pinecone Wreath!

Just like so many other bloggers I really get inspired by the Ballard catalogs that I get in my mailbox.  My dream house would have lots of Ballard furniture with vintage pieces as well, but of course that's only in my dreams since Ballards prices are a bit out of my budget!  I had been admiring their pinecone wreath since I first saw it in the holiday catalog

So pretty!  so I decided to try and make a similar one but with smaller pinecones. 

I decided to add a little color to mine but still not sure if I like it or not... what do you think? (I still have to pick all the hot glue gun strings off)?  The little red balls were in the mix of mini pinecones and cinnamon sticks I purchased at Michaels and they smell great and have a little sparkle which you can't tell of course since I have the worst camera ever!  Should I add a ribbon too it as well? 

I would also love to try and make these little pinecone topiaries from Ballard, we'll see....


  1. i like yours way better- it is much fuller and prettier! you are so talented with wreaths!

  2. I like yours the best... just the way it is. (with the red)... no ribbon... looks great! And HELLO the Kate Spade china?!!! I'm sooo jealous! I love your color choices throughout your home.

  3. I think a ribbon could be a nice complement, keep it simple, I think a silver one, with the wire in the edges so you can shape it. Silver would be simple and accent the wreath not compete or detract from the wreath. BTW I just found your blog and I think it's great.

  4. I love your wreath! Anything with pinecones is perfect in my book! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I really like the way it looks! And those topiaries are adorable! You should go for it!
