Some craft projects that use pine cones are making holiday picture frames, wreaths and place cards. Decorating hurricane glasses with pine cones or making pine-cone turkeys, pine cone centerpieces and garland are some other fun ideas.
To make an easy pine-cone centerpiece for a holiday table, cut the base off two or three pine cones so that they stand upright, then sprinkle them with glitter or artificial snow. Glue some tiny ornaments, ribbons or berries between the pine-cone scales for a decorative touch.
To make pine-cone garland, choose a few pine cones of various sizes, and attach velvet ribbon to the cones with thumbtacks. Glue on some berries, mistletoe, bay leaves or tiny ornaments to cover the tacks, then wrap a length of ribbon around the top to form a loop. Hang in a doorway or use as an ornament on a Christmas tree.
