We have things all around us that can be used for more than what we first think of for their purpose. Take the pine cone, for example. Something so simple, so natural, and even...FREE (if you're willing to go on a nature walk). A few years ago, I gathered several and spray painted them gold. They have held several new purposes for me since then...
A place embellishment
An easy centerpiece
On a garland
A decor accent
Or even as a gift topper...sorry no picture of that, because I haven't wrapped any gifts yet!
These little beauties are perfect for lots of reasons, but I especially love them for decor at this time of year. It's easy to miss the things that are sometimes right under your nose. Instead of throwing out all those pine cones, reuse them, and give them a whole new life!
