I have been loving all the pine cone decorations I have been seeing all over Blogland and in catalogs and magazines. I almost bought a bag of pine cones last week until my husband spotted me with them in my hand and gave me that “surely you aren’t going to buy a bag of pine cones” look so I reluctantly put them back.
I am glad I did because yesterday I saw a bunch of big pine cones on the ground at the park close to my home. I pulled over and picked up two grocery bags full. Yep, I went pine cone pickin’!
Look at the size of this pine cone! That sucker is almost 7 inches tall.
I plan on using these pine cones in my Thanksgiving tablescape but for now I have placed them on the hearth in a large hurricane along with a small orange berry garland to add a little pop of color.
This was a very thrifty project….the pine cones were free and I already had everything else I needed to complete the look. That’s it for my pine cone pickin’ post.
Have a fabulous week!
