Wintery Pinecone Decor

Even though the holidays have passed, we still have a long winter ahead of us and it's not too late to get your home looking lovely for the season. Decorating should be a fun and easy thing to do, and with pinecones it is. When using a natural and easily found item like pinecones, it's relatively simple to customize your home's winter decor.

For an easy DIY project, try stringing pinecones on a piece of ribbon or twine. Hang your homemade creation from your mantel or a shelf for an instant wintery look. Or, cut long strips of a thicker ribbon and tie a pinecone to the end of each strip. Tie all of the strips together and hang it from a window pane or door knocker. Choose a traditional holiday color for your ribbon such as red or green, or opt for a color that coordinates with the style and colors in your home.

Feeling a bit more adventurous? Try creating a pinecone wreath that can be used as eye-catching front door decor. Add ornaments, holly, or lights for an extra reminder of the holidays.

Last but not least, arrange pincones in a vase or bowl for a super easy yet festive decoration.
