I have been wanting to create a dream Christmas tree for a long time. I have always been drawn to the creams, browns & golds that you see with rustic Christmas tree decorations. Every year I say I am going to change things & make a beautiful tree but I lose track of time to get it done & we end up putting up the same ol’ random collection of ornaments that we have been using for years. NOT THIS YEAR. I am being proactive & starting now. Best part is that I am utilizing things I already have on hand & either re-purposing or up-cycling them to work for me this year. It won’t cost me much of anything but some paint & a dip into things I already have on hand- so that’s a good thing. Because when it comes to the hubs & my bright ideas- the only thing he wants to know is “how much is this going to cost us?” For this- nearly free & I get my beautiful tree. So one of the first things I knew I wanted was pine cones. I set the children outside to gather what they could in the yard- we will continue to collect & add to our ornaments as they fall off the trees. But to start we made these little beauties to bring the rustic of outside in here.
Simple Pine Cone Ornaments
Super simple – just take your pine cone & intertwine your string around the base-
tie in a knot & then tie another knot at the ends to make your loop.
I added a little cream lace bow around the base too for more brightening once it’s on the tree.
It’s that simple & I can’t wait to get our tree so I can put them on.
Stay tuned- more of my re-purposed Christmas tree decorating shared soon.
Don’t forget to come back & join me on Mondays for Project 52
