Decorating With Pine Cones

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.


So, next time you are up at the mountains bring some home!  The possibilities are endless for fall and Christmas decorating.  Perfect for kids crafts too!
