With Halloween behind us, it’s time to warm up our homes a little bit with the perfect fall and winter decorations. A staple at my house is the pinecone. I live in the northwest, so they’re all over the place and the easiest way to craft and decorate. Here are some ideas to get you started:
This wreath is an easy transitional piece for winter. It’s got enough earthy tones to put up now, and you won’t have to take it down until long past Christmas.
Rainbow Fairies – Twig & Toadstool
Brighten up a rainy fall day with these adorable colorful fairies. Kids will love to make their own fairy friends, one in every color!
Pinecone Placecards – Midwest Living
I love the simple and earthy look of these place cards. They make a great decoration for Thanksgiving and I think a little white paint here an there can even make them useful for the holidays.
Pinecone Monogram Wreath – Mommy Suite
Decorate your door with a natural monogram that makes a huge statement. I love the natural look of this decor and it definitely reminds me of the holidays but in a much more understated way.
Pinecone Hedgehogs – Easy Peasy and Fun
Kids can make their own cute and prickly critters using found pinecones. Make them as colorful or realistic as you like!
