Have a Pinecone Christmas

Nothing says Winter like a pine cone country décor. This year why not make your Christmas gathering more special for yourself, your family, and your friends by making your own holiday decorations?

Pine cones are one of the easiest and most inexpensive crafting item to use. Actually for some of us they are free. There are many places you can find pine cones laying around on the ground just for the taking. For some, all they have to do is look in their own back yard.

The best part of all is, you can involve your children in the pine cone making craft projects. They are many crafts available that are perfect for the younger set.

If you are one of the select few who will have to purchase pinecone, well, to tell the truth, they really aren't expensive. Go on amazon or ebay and you will find many to choose from. Or you can go on a craft site and order some. If you love the scented pinecones you can order them pre-scented with cinnamon. They smell heavenly and the aroma does last of quite a while.

Your First Step After Obtaining Pinecones

I have found that for myself it seems to go a whole lot smoother when you have a plan. I organize my supplies before I begin so I don't have to get half way through a project and find out I need something that I don't have to complete it.

I hope the ideas I have shared with you will help get you started on a pathway towards crafting with pinecones. They truly make a beautiful, rustic display.
