I love pinecone ornaments. I think the turkey and peacock are my favorites. But I really like those pinecone frame ideas, too.

I love pinecone crafts! Great finds! I wish I had enough time (and pinecones) to make a bunch of these.

Thanks for linking to DSC!

I just love pine cones. There really doesn’t seem to be any end to what you can do with them. I remember my mom just lightly spraying them with gold and putting them in a basket by the fire 🙂

I’ve actually done quite a few of these, but I did find some new ideas. Thank you. Pine cones are so much fun to craft with. They always evoke a smile.

Aren’t pine cones great? So very versatile … I love what you’ve done with them!

We made these pine cone reindeer at school and have suggestions-use small pine cones from lodge pole pines,cotton ball for tails, and can fold horns down into ears for does. The students (boys & girls) loved it and they are 4th graders. Thank you for this great idea!

I love these ideas. I can’t wait for my Dad to bring me some pinecones so I can do these with my husband and kids! I know they will love helping me.
