It’s that time of year again, when the grocery stores display those over-scented cinnamon pine cones that overload your nostrils when you walk in. But really, who can resist them? They basically turn your home into a real Christmassy Wonderland. And they are only like $2.99 a bag!
I always buy a bag and scatter them around the house, but I think it would be really cool to get some good crafting out of them. Pinterest is full of pine cone crafts.
Maybe I’ll take some time to make them into little trees. Isn’t that just cute?
Gold pine cone garland anyone?
Or maybe I should really go all out and incorporate the cones into an over-the-top mantel display?
For now I’m hoping that the scent will overpower the inadequacies in my pine cone display skills. I’m going for the “natural” scattered pine cone look.
