Last week I shared with you my updated dining room. I still owe you some tutorials and they are coming, but first I was finishing up my dining room! I had a few more elements I wanted to add to really finish up the tablescape. When I was on Oriental Trading looking for some other fun items, I stumbled across their super affordable Cotton Stem Wreath – seriously, I’ve seen them as high as $90. I thought it would look great with my DIY rustic window, so I added that puppy to my cart. Which got my wheels turning and thinking how a smaller version would look cute hanging on my new dining table chairs… but sadly, they didn’t have any smaller ones. But no worries, they had everything I needed to MAKE MY OWN! Want to make your own DIY Cotton Stem Wreath, affordably? Read on!

I thought it would be easiest to share how I made the wreaths via video. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below.

Note: I did try two different ways to add the pinecone pieces to the wreath – the first is what you see in the video. The second way was to add the cotton ball blossoms, and prior to filling in the empty spaces, add in the pinecone pieces around the blossoms. Fill in the empty spaces with the cotton balls and fill in any necessary spots with pinecones. I found it easier to not overdue the pinecone pieces the second way, but both ended up with pretty wreaths, so do what makes sense to you!

I made one wreath for all 8 of my dining room chairs, all for under $30! I could have actually made another 4. I love the warmth they add to the room. Plus, they’re super adorable, right? What do you think, will be making your own DIY Cotton Stem Wreath?

Honestly, the hardest part of the whole procedure is breaking the pinecones! Some were simple, others took forever, and my fingers did take a bit of a beating, but in the end, totally worth it!
