At What’s Ur Home Story, Vidya has a great way to dress up pine cones for Christmas decor. If you have a yard with pine trees or live near a park or nature preserve that has them, then pine cones will be free and plentiful at this time of year. (They are also pretty easy to come by in the holiday decor section of your local store.)
Vidya loved the look of the gilded pine cone ornaments she’d come across in the pages of a favorite catalog. With a little spray paint, she’d soon turned her own pine cones into glittering gold treasures for the Christmas tree. I love these! The gold gives them a touch of elegance, but the fact that they are simple pinecones keeps these ornaments from looking too opulent.
