Pine Cone Flower Embellished Mason Jars

Can you feel it in the air? FALL! With its arrival comes a change in decorating… textures and natural elements. Today, I am going to show you how to create these beautiful pine cone flowers…

Pine Cone Flower Embellished Mason Jars

Craft Supplies Needed:

Craft Supplies for Pine Cone FlowersLet’s get started! First, you will wrap the mason jars. I wrapped two with braided jute twine. The other one, I wrapped with sueded chocolate brown cording. To braid the jute twine, cut 3 lengths of jute twine and tie together at one end. I estimated my length based on this very non-exact formula….
length around jar  x  number of times to wrap { I wrapped mine 5 times around }  x 2.5 = cut length of jute twine {you will need 3 cut lengths to braid together!}

Wrapping Mason JarsNext, you will create the beautiful pine cone flowers. First we need to cut the pine cone apart!
Cutting Pine Cone StepsStep 1:
Gather your supplies including craft saw, needle nose pliers, and scissors!

Step 2:

Use your needle nose pliers and carefully pull out a row of pine cone pieces all the way around the cone. This will allow a space for you to saw the pine cone apart!

Step 3:

Very carefully, use your craft saw to cut apart the pine cone. You will be using the bottom piece as one of your flowers.

Step 4:

Carefully peel the pine cone pieces off. You may need to actually cut them off from the core of the pine cone with scissors. 

Now, we are to the part where you create your beautiful flower. Simply begin with your round chipboard circle. Start gluing your pine cone pieces down along the edge of the chipboard circle.
Making Pine Cone Flower Continue to layer the pine cone pieces on top of each other until you reach the middle. Now, glue the wooden plug down in the center of the flower.
Finished Pine Cone FlowersI created three different types of pine cone flowers…one from the end of the pine cone, one “daisy” looking flower, and one “mum” looking flower. How cool are these!?
