I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner already (which means that our little Jonah’s 2nd birthday is also right around the corner! What?!). Time is flying by, so before it’s time to deck the halls with all things Christmas (which will be happening very soon around here), I whipped up a DIY pinecone & stag fall wreath with some of my favorite products from Plaid. (And bonus, the pinecones were free since I sent the kiddos out to collect them from our yard.)
- Wire wreath form
- Mod Podge® Mod Melter
- Mod Podge® Mod Melts
- Mod Podge® Mod Molds in “Mystical Forest”
- Hot Glue Gun
- FolkArt® Multi-Surface Craft Paint in Titanium White
- Plaid Liquid Leaf® in Classic Gold

DIY Pinecone & Stag Head Fall Wreath Tutorial
First, I painted my wreath form with Plaid Liquid Leaf so that it would blend more seamlessly with my pinecones. I absolutely love this product. It might be my very favorite craft supply ever. (You may have seen me use it recently on my DIY planter too.) It’s easy to use and can transform almost anything into the most beautiful shade of gold.
Then, I painted the edges, tops, and bottoms of my pinecones with Plaid Liquid Leaf.
While my pinecones and wreath form were drying, I moved on to my stag heads. Using Mod Podge Mod Melts and Molds, I created these fun little stag heads to attach to my wreath.
Basically, you load the Mod Melts into the Mod Melter, which works similarly to a hot glue gun. You squirt it into the mold and let it harden for 10 minutes, then pop it out and it’s ready to paint or embellish whatever you’d like. I used tiny scissors to trim any excess Mod Melt off of the edges of my stag heads.
I painted the stags with FolkArt® Multi-Surface Craft Paint in Titanium White.
Next, I carefully hot glued my pinecones to my metal wreath form.
Then, I created a bow with my ribbon and hot glue, and tied it to the top of my wreath.
Finally, I hot glued my stag heads to the center of each pine cone.
I kind of love the fact that this wreath can carry over into winter too, and will even work for the holidays.
Are you making any fall crafts? If so, I’d love to hear about it!
