If you’re a fall-lover, you’ve probably spent every day since July 4 dreaming of chunky scarves, crisp leaves, and pumpkin spice lattes. Now that the weather’s starting to cool, it’s the perfect occasion to add a bit of fall-themed decor to your home, and there’s no better way to do that than with an easy-to-make pinecone wreath.

A DIY pinecone wreath is the perfect fall decoration because it transcends seasons. Pumpkins make for a classic DIY fall wreath that will easily make through November, but a pinecone wreath will get you all the way past Thanksgiving and can look good beyond New Year’s, too. But the greatest thing about pinecone wreaths is that they’re so simple and affordable to execute. You’ll be able to pick up supplies at craft stores easily (and sometimes even dollar stores!) and can even use foraged pinecones to decorate. Play your cards right and you can pull off this DIY decor for just a few bucks.

Here, find five different pinecone wreaths to suit a range of styles that will inspire you to take on this DIY just in time for fall.

A Classic All-Pinecone Wreath

The classics are classics for a reason. This pinecone wreath from Sustain My Craft Habit looks timeless, thanks to a construction that features only natural pinecones arranged around a circular form. You won’t even need glue or wires to make it. Get the full instructions here.

A Glammed-Up Personalized Pinecone Wreath

If you want to dress up a basic pinecone wreath, it’s as simple as adding a single embellishment like a dramatic bow or even an oversized monogram, as Cassie from Hi Sugarplum shows here. The gold finish is a particularly luxe touch. See the project here.

A Colorful Pinecone Wreath

The natural brown color of pinecones is a great fit for a range of styles, from traditional to rustic. But there’s no rule that a pinecone wreath has to be brown. Take a cue from PMQ for Two and brush on paint in colors of your choice to create a more whimsical version of the classic pinecone wreath. Find the instructions here.

A Faux Floral Pinecone Wreath

Pinecones don’t have to look explicitly like pinecones, either. A few strategic snips can give regular old pinecones the shape of flowers. Leave them as they are, or embellish them like The House That Lars Built to lean even further into the faux floral vibe. Get the full how-to here.

A Modern Bleached Pinecone Wreath

Want something a little more in line with your boho-chic decor? Skip the paint and reach for bleach instead, like Emma Chapman of A Beautiful Mess did here. The bleached pinecones look especially striking against a dark grapevine form. See the instructions here.
