Pine Cones
 
I love to collect pine cones in the fall and have used them for many different craft ideas..I have made ornaments, bird feeders, wreaths, firestarters. Does anyone else like to use pine cones for various projects?

We put pine cones on our tree so it looks like it is real, I also use them when I make centerpieces & wreathes.

Oh a centerpiece with pinecones would be nice..I haven't done this before. Although I have seen this idea and they always look so lovely..add some holly and a candle and there ya go.

I did mine with a candle, some fake holiday flowers, little ornaments, some holly, little fake presents, then the pine cones too, they really came out nice & we gave them way as gifts.

Does she pick huckleberries too? I really miss them. My Aunt usually gives me some when she goes to Idaho to see family. I have some in my freeze but plan to save them until I make a cake or pancakes.

I love to use pinecones in bowls with cinnamon sticks to add fragance to the house.

That's a good idea, I could put some all over the house.
