(The large pine cones lined up on the top shelf are just as appealing as the ones
tossed in with the greens at the bottom. Cozy!)
I love pine cones because they add such great texture and shape to any decor. Whether you collect them from your yard or buy them in a craft store, have some on hand to add that something extra to your decor.
I happen to have about 12 super large pine cones from the woods in NC and I bring them out in a different way every year. It's nice to vary the sizes of your pine cones to add visual interest to your decor.
(This is the display I created in our not-yet-working fire place. I used the large pine cones
on the floor and incorporated smaller sizes among the various greens.)
(A closer look at the smaller pine cones.)
If the natural color of pine cones doesn't go with your decor, spray paint them to fit your style. White, cream, gold or silver...they still look great.
(On my buffet a few pine cones get comfortable with glass, greens and lights. Easy!)
(What a welcome canopy of greens and cones.)
(I made one of these trees once (this isn't it), but it broke when we were talking it
out of the attic one year...it would be nice to have several in different heights.)
Happy decorating (with pine cones)!
