Great inspiration. I have some beautiful ribbon that needs to be used. I see a pinecone swag in my near future.

I love to use natural items from my garden for decor as well. In lieu of a Christmas tree last year I cut red dogwood and covered it in tiny white lights. I loved it but my son ( tree lover) was not amused. I especially love the bowl your pods are in.

Pine cones make great bird feeders for cold winter months. Just melt some fat like copha, lard, or anything that sets when cold, stir in wild bird seed mix (+ stuff that has expired in the pantry like dried fruits, nuts and seeds) and when it resets fill the open cone holes with it. Wind a wire safely around the top and hang in your garden. I first invented this idea for my book 'Alchemy of the Mortar & Pestle'.
