The past few days have been crazy for me. I got the flu and BAM-I was D O W N! It is so hard to be sick when you have SO much to do. Especially at Christmastime. I still have all of our presents to wrap. I don’t have time to be sick. Do you? I am feeling MUCH better today. So good in fact, that I made a Pecan and Pine Cone Garland.
This week, I am having fun sharing some of the inexpensive ways I like to decorate for Christmas. I am excited to show you one of my fave and easy peasy projects. Not only that-BUT I LOVE to use it with my Christmas decorations.
A few years ago, I added a pine cone garland to an Epsom Salt display for Christmas. And with a few extra ideas and creativity, I made a new, fuller version…
A few years ago I visited Anthropologie and saw a 5 foot pine cone garland for $30, I KNOW, too much for me to pay, so I got my creative juices going and decided to make my own.
I first gathered a few pine cones and my jute.
Using hot glue, I adhered my small pine cones to the jute.
I kept adding my pine cones, but not in any certain distance between. (I like imperfect things)
While visiting my mom she gave me some other types of pine cones and pecans. Hmmm….
Yep, you guessed it, I added them to my pine cone garland.
I really like the woodsy and natural look of the pecan and pine cone garland, don’t you?
Drape or hang a pecan and pine cone garland anywhere in your home. Even on a silver champagne bucket as a Fall or Christmas decoration. Those crystals add a nice contrast, don’t they?
I like easy peasy and quick projects that make an impact. This Anthropologie Inspired Pecan and Pine Cone Garland is most certainly one. And the cost? About $2. Not too shabby, right?
Thanks so much for stopping by. You always make my day even that much more bright.
