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.
Speaking of imagination, I’m going to inspire yours with some links to year-round visual “cone-tinual” goodies. And these are just a few of the many, many ideas for pine cones. Enjoy!
