Can you feel the change in the air? The heat has broken, we have crisp evenings and every store is pulling out their Christmas decorations already (which, is a bit of a crime in my opinions since it gets earlier every year!). Since we have at least a month before Christmas is officially here, it’s time to start thinking about decorating your home to get in the festive spirit! I love decorations as much as the next person, but ornate and gorgeous decor can be expensive. Frankly, I love natural elements as much as a fancy wreath to show off my holiday spirit and that’s why I love the idea of decoration with pinecones! Nothing says winter like a pinecone and you can find them free everywhere! Check out this awesome list of perfect pinecone decorations, at your service!

4. Pinecone Ornaments
Many people have themed Christmas trees that demonstrate a color or other design, like Snowmen. I’m not one of those people, because I have too many hodge podge ornaments I’m attached to! But if you love the idea of a themed, tree, you can make a pinecone-themed tree very simply! These ornaments are simple pinecones with a bead glued on the top to provide a means to thread ribbon through, then hang!
