Free Fall Decorations - Pine Cone Garland

On my walk yesterday, I gathered a bunch of pine cones to make a pine cone garland. I like bringing the outside in, so it feels like fall even when its too dark or too cold to be outside. Which for me is almost every day I work. It's dark when I leave in the morning, and dark when I get home in the evening.

Here is my original inspiration picture from Twig & Thistle. She used what I call "question mark hooks" to hang the pine cones but I only had one of those on hand, obviously not enough. I ended up using pushpins instead and then punched a whole smaller than the top in my ribbon so that it would stay in place.

With the way I hung them it kind of looks like the pine cones are floating from far away. But I'm ok with that.

One of these days, I'll develop the patience to wait and take pictures when it's lighter inside :)


  1. Yes Yes I will be copying you my dear! i think with little pumpkins and know what i mean. You will have to teach me how you got those little hooks on the top of them. SUPER CUTE!
