Pine Cones and Acorn wreath

I did a guest post a couple of weeks ago and made this Pine Cone and Acorn wreath/hoop.



This time of year you can find just about everything you need for this project in yards everywhere!



I took part of an old potato sack and stretched it on an embroidery hoop.



I used the pine cones for the petals and the acorn tops for the center and just glued them on the potato sack.



That's it, easy peasy!

I'll be linking Here this week.

What a coincidence. I saved my burlap peanut bag - just in case I came across a way to use it. Now I have your idea. Thanks.

I LOVE it! It has such natural, rustic feel to it. It would go perfectly in my house. I think I'll make one.

Our children love creating nature projects—collecting the materials outdoors is so wonderful to do together before the project...as much fun as the project itself. You've shared a wonderful nature project idea here.
