Crazy for Cones

Lately, it seems like pine cones are my personal go-to home decor staple. It’s not just because we sell a lot of sizes, styles, and colors either. That is just a perk that makes it easier for me to get my hands on them and scatter them around my home! A few on the mantel, a few in a vase…you get the idea.

Not to mention that when your 3rd grader has science homework about the seeds of coniferous trees…you have a 3-D, hands-on model right at your fingertips (true story).

Anyway, the reality is pine cones are like the “little black dress” of the wardrobe. It’s a staple that looks great all by itself but can take on a variety of looks depending on the accessories it’s paired with. It’s extremely versatile and complements any style.

Besides a home decor staple, pine cones are a craft staple as well! From camps to classrooms, nature’s gift is creativity’s base to endless ideas. Glue, glitter, paint, birdseed…the mediums are limited only by your imagination.
