Pinecone Crafts

Standard

Pinecones are falling, and there are some really cute things you can make from the fruits of your collecting labor. The FIRST thing you should do is bake the bugs out of pinecones, bark or even acorns if you collect them from nature. How do you do that? Check this link here from House of Hepworths.

What can you do with your bug-free pinecones? So many things!

Make a fall garland with this example from Better Homes and Garden. BHG suggested you change out the burlap ribbons to red ribbons for the Christmas holidays. Heck, that might even include Valentine’s decor.
