Materials You Need:
- White or Ivory curtains (The length will depend on your ceiling height and windows.)
- Pinecones like these (or you may be able to find them outside)
- Fake pine garland (9′-10′ of garland per window)
- Clear fishing line
- Paper clips
How To Create a DIY Pinecone Curtain
Step 1: Hang the Curtains
The obvious first step is to switch out your curtains with some white or ivory colored curtains if you don’t already use that color in the room. You will need two curtain panels for each window, one for each side.
This is a great time to clean your every day curtains as well. (Make sure to check the washing instructions on your curtains to see how.)
Step 2: Hang the Pine Garland
Find the center of your pine garland piece.
Bend a paper clip into a double sided hook shape.
Hook the pine garland in the center of your curtain rod between the two curtain panels.
Drape the garland on either side of the curtain and hook it behind the edge of the curtain rod on each side, creating two U shapes on the top of the curtain. The rest of the garland should hang on either side of the outsides of your curtains.
Step back and make sure that the U shapes and the edge pieces of garland are even.
I used one long strand of pine garland that I cut into 10 foot pieces. This was a good length for the size of my windows.
Step 3: Add the Pinecones
Tie clear fishing line around each pinecone, leaving a little line on the end.
Bend another paper clip into a double sided hook and tie one end of the paper clip onto the fishing line. Try to tie it as close to the pinecone as you can.
Trim any excess line with a scissors.
Hook the other end of the paper clip onto the pine garland.
Hook a pine cone on the left, middle, and right of the curtain.
And you are done.

It doesn’t have to be complicated to change the look of your home for Christmas.
There are so many easy ways to create a festive feel for your home. And once you own a different set of curtains it can become part of your decorating repertoire. These same ivory curtains were used in my winter wonderland themed Christmas in a previous year.
