A few strategically placed turkeys (not the real ones, mind you) will really help you to make it holiday worthy.

Make the Wreath: Wrap a 16-inch wreath form with burlap ribbon and loop a piece around the wreath form for hanging. Paint the tips of 40 pine cones in fall colors such as orange, yellow, and beige with acrylic paint. Brush the tips of 10 pine cones with matte Mod Podge and sprinkle with gold and copper glitter. Once dry, wrap an 18-inch length of floral wire around the base of each pinecone and twist tie around the wreath form to secure, layering and overlapping them as you go.
