On our last trip to Lake Tahoe, I lugged home two grocery bags full of pine cones. (My husband wanted to kill me by the way!) Big ones, little ones, narrow ones, wide ones. It didn’t matter that I didn’t have anything to do with them. I would find a way to use them.
I ended up painting some of them and putting them in a basket with some birch logs by the mantel.
Here are some other ideas for decorating with this outdoor jewel.
