The mighty pine cone

Canadian decor maven Cobi Ladner has a great blog, and just posted a super round-up of great, modern ideas for festive pine cone decor.  Pine cones are an obvious and economical way to decorate, and I love the idea of hanging them from festive ribbon as above and below instead of a wreath!  You could do it on colourful ribbons and add a few brightly-coloured christmas balls - or do it on natural linen ribbon and add some twigs and rustic linen decorations (a la pi'lo) for a softer look.
Sarah also did a lovely grouping of pine cones in her modern holiday decorating 
(love how she used the ornaments too):
And here are a few more ideas I found that I like:
Love this one - so's happening guys...I'm getting in the Christmas mood!  Look out!


  1. Thanks for the shout out! I also LOVE the pine cones with the pom-poms. I'm going to have to do that.

  2. I love pinecones! I've been using them in layered in vases with faux snow and berries.

    It was definitely great chatting with you as well on Saturday!

  3. How did you know I had a box full of pine cones in my garage that I didn't know what to do with? I think I'll make the garland, but paint them white first a la Sarah Richardson Christmas special. Thanks!


Thank you so much for your comment - they always make my day!
