As the school year approaches, the day of our wedding looms closer. We are ALMOST at the 100 day mark! I took one of my last free weekends, and spent the morning with one of my bridesmaids crafting! I found this general concept on Pinterest but made it my own.
What you’ll need:
Pine cones (I used cinnamon scented craft/decor ones)
1/4 inch ribbon
3/4 inch ribbon
1 inch ribbon
Hot glue gun
Jingle bells of varying sizes (optional)
*please excuse the newspaper I used to protect the table!* 🙂
I am going to hang these on the ends of pews, backs of chairs, and a few other places. I created loops with a 6-8 inch strands of the 1/4 inch ribbon. My bridesmaid Alexa turned out to be the bow tying champ of all time. She tied each bow, varying lengths, and cut the ends on a slight angle.
HANDY TIP!!! It is way easier to make a pile of bows and cut a bunch of ribbon to start and then go through and glue it all. The process goes way faster/smoother!
Using the hot glue gun, I took a length of thin ribbon, and glued the ends.
I then put a small spot of hot glue on the back of a bow and applied it to a loop. I tried to spread the ribbon so that the bow was glued to both the front and back of the loop not just the front for more stability.
Apply a small line of hot glue to the top of a pine cone and gently press in the tail end of your loop that you hot glued into it.
Let set and you have a super cute pine cone! If you’re feeling fancy, or have a little too much ribbon showing under the bow, add a jingle bell or two!
