Versatile Pine Cones

Versatile Pine Cones

By Karen Robbins

Whether you buy them by the bagful or pick up your own outside, pine cones are one of the most inexpensive and fun ways to decorate for Christmas. Put out a bowlful of cones as a centerpiece. If you purchase the scented cones, it will also fill the room with wonderful cinnamon or pine scents.
Or fill large glass containers/vases with the cones. I take old small colored glass ornaments and sprinkle them in as well. Usually one side gets tarnished and as I layer them with the cones in a large vase, I turn the shiny side out.

From Dollar Store Crafts site, let your little ones make their own miniature Christmas trees with three items: pine cones, small pom-poms, and glue.

Do you have a favorite place for cones in your holiday decorating? Let us know. We love to hear your ideas.
