Pine Cone Beauties

They’re simple yet festive, versatile yet inexpensive.  Here’s some of my fave DIY pine cone lovelies that can go from a charming woodland affair to an elegant fall or winter celebration.

I love all of those. I may have to do one of these tonight!

Another good trick for glitzing up pine cones… dip/brush them with glue and attack with glitter! They look great whether you glitter them entirely, mix the colours or just do the edges and it’s a great messy activity to try with kids :)

Love the purple ribbon pine cones. The purple just makes it seem a little more modern, though it would look just as good with traditional red or green ribbon.

I love these ideas! Especially the non-traditional wreath. I’ll have to keep that one in mind for next year!

Oooo… my dad just brought me down 100 Ponderosa Pine Cones from his mountain home. They are opening up beautifully! I was going to make bird feeders with some of them then I was going to spray-paint the rest for ornaments. I was afraid of spray paint though because it’s messy and dangerous for the environment, so I’ll dip them like the image above! thanks for the idea!

Love Sweet Paul’s idea. Thanks for sharing. We collected pine cones and scented them with some essential oils, these are great ways to display them.

Pine cones soaked in white! Brilliant!

Cute ideas with the pine cones. I wish I had a mantel b/c I really like the string of pine cones on the mantel. Who knew pine cones made such adorable decorations!

I’ve also seen pine cone candle holders over at Style Hive that would compliment these perfectly. Of course after looking at the candles I’m sot sure how they couldn’t be a fire hazard.

The main reason I’m contacting you is to exchange blog links with you. Would you like your blog listed on my wedding blogroll with just your website name or something else?
On a business note, friends of mine at Exclusively Weddings said if I ever ran into a quality wedding related website (like this one) to ask if you might be interested in mentioning them ? Is it possible to have them listed under a category in your navigation under “Friends” or something like that? They can you a fee by PayPal for your time to do this if needed.
Enough about them I look forward to hearing back from you either way and keep up these great posts!!

Like the pine cones. They even look edible when put on a plate.
