My 9th Favorite Holiday Decor Item: Pine Cones

We're coming into the home stretch here...with only 4 more favorites left to go! My ninth favorite holiday decorating item is pine cones. Come to think of it, they should be my #1 because I always use them for holiday decor.

I love pine cones because they add such great texture and shape to any decor. Whether you collect them from your yard or buy them in a craft store, have some on hand to add that something extra to your decor.

I happen to have about 12 super large pine cones from the woods in NC and I bring them out in a different way every year. It's nice to vary the sizes of your pine cones to add visual interest to your decor.

If the natural color of pine cones doesn't go with your decor, spray paint them to fit your style. White, cream, gold or silver...they still look great.

Happy decorating (with pine cones)!
