PINE CONE CHRISTMAS DECORATION

http://www.giverslog.com/wrapthegift/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/08-11-06-truluxe-pinecones.jpg
An almost free decoration with a real folksy feel! The high winds in our area have brought down a few cones this week - I'm picking them up and leaving them somewhere warmish (anywhere indoors will do) so that they open up a little. Then when they are ready, I glue pom-poms on them (as pictured) - or if you don't want to buy anything, have a rummage through your button tin for tiny buttons and glue on - if your buttons are just plain white shirt buttons, then paint them with any nail varnish colours you have! Alternatively, use any old beads you may have for a real vintage look!
These will look great lined up along the mantel piece, on the hall table or any windowsill.
Happy frugal Christmas!
