From the Garden

Holiday decor and crafts involve bringing a little bit of the outdoors inside. Pinecones and Acorns make great elements for centerpieces, garlands, mantles and ornaments. For those of you who are in a more urban setting, or just don't live somewhere that you can walk outside and gather them, consider these! Click the photos to get more information and purchase!

Medium to Large Pinecones
 Pinecones and Log Candle Holder decorate a non-functioning fireplace
 Acorns from the New England woods
 Acorns in a decorative bowl

Some ideas for use:
  • Pinecones fastened to a wire or foam wreath form embellished with acorns
  • Lightly glittered pinecones in a large dish as a centerpiece
  • Acorn "people" Christmas tree ornaments - Glue two together for head & body, add google eyes and pipe cleaner arms
  • Fasten both Acorns and Pinecones to Garlands
  • Attach wire hooks to pinecones and use as tree ornaments
Enjoy your holiday decorating and please contact me if you have requests for smaller pinecones, larger quantities of either pinecones or acorns...or for additional ideas.
