Pine Cone Flower Embellished Mason Jars…

Craft Supplies Needed:

Pine Cone Flowers


Circular Chipboard Shapes
Tools Needed:
Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Needle Nose Pliers
Strong Scissors 

Let’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 {5}  x 2.5 = cut length of jute twine {you will need 3 cut lengths to braid together!}

Next, you will create the beautiful pine cone flowers. First we need to cut apart the pine cone!

Step 1:
Gather your supplies!

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 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. 

Now we are to the part where you create your flower. Simply begin with your round chipboard circle. Start gluing your pine cone pieces down along the edge of the chipboard circle.

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.

I created two different three different types of flowers…one from the end of the pine cone, one “daisy” looking flowers, and one “mum” looking flower. How cool are these!

Once the flowers were dry, I glued them onto the jute twine and sueded cording with my glue gun. I absolutely love how they turned out! The earthy textures and colors welcome fall!

These are the perfect accent for my home for the fall season and Thanksgiving. Place a little candle in them or use them as a vase…so many possibilities!

    Seriously??? It was like you created this craft just for ME!!! I am crushing out over mason jars and I have had a lifelong love of pine cones ( for reasons I do not know). I even have a pine cone “collection”. I am away this weekend, but as soon as I return home, I will be going to the hardware store to buy a little saw. Then, I will be making my pine one embellished mason jars. Thanks for the GREAT idea. I love the way these look!

  19. I was wondering how big the Circular Chipboard Shapes are? And also what size Round Wooden Plugs you used? Also do you glue the twine down? I am trying to make these for my wedding center pieces but am a little lost. I look forward to your reply. Thank you!
