13 Pine Cone Projects

The wonderful thing about Christmas decorating,
is that you can create beauty using
just natural elements provided by the good Lord.

One of my favorite elements is pine cones,
and you can usually find them free for the picking - 
if not in your own yard, then from a friend,
or in a park.  I constantly pick up pine
cones when on walks and have baskets of 
them all over, but I thought it would be nice
to find some pretty variations for them.

Here are 13 pine cone decor ideas 
that inspired me.  Click on the photos to
view from the original source (when known).

I really love this idea of stringing
them to make a garland.

I think these jars with pine cones would make
inexpensive, yet pretty gifts.  Just paint the tips,
add them to wire wrapped around the jar and 
include a candle inside.
Isn't this lovely?!

Glued to the edge of a basket - very pretty!
And simply sitting pretty in a basket.
I remember doing this peanut butter and bird seed on pine cone
project with my kids when they were younger.
They had fun making them and enjoyed watching
the birds eat their treat.
