I took a basket of pine cones to my sister-in-law. I have many pine cones even after decorating.
We did two wall trees for the stairwell. This pine cone wreath I did in 1975. According to the journal I replaced the ribbon in 1998.
Pine cones keep well. I have some ready to be used as firestarters. Last year I picked up over 600. This year I have not counted. I am leaving many on the ground. I still have a large bag full from last year, unused. Perhaps I will do up a few more baskets to give as hostess gifts. I can scent them with oil and add some pine branches and some cinnamon sticks.
