Country Living Logo By Country Living Staff of Country Living | Slide 1 of 34: Head out to your backyard or favorite hiking trail and gather up one of Mother Nature's most beautiful creations: the pine cone! Once you have your bounty in hand, simply head to your craft closet and you are ready to start fashioning one of these seasonal, fun, and festive DIY projects. There are ideas for easy holiday craft projects, Christmas crafts for kids, winter decorating ideas, and plenty more ideas that you can make in no time. The best part of all, though, pine cone crafts tend to be incredibly inexpensive! There's no need to shell out top dollar here—simply use what you find outside. Want to get the kids involved, have them lend a little hand making easy pine cone pom-pom ornaments or felt pine cone fox. Looking for a slightly more involved weekend project try making a pine cone kissing ball or a garland you can hang over the fireplace or around the front door. Whether you're going for a more intricate wintertime display or you'd prefer to keep things subdued and subtle, a pine cone or two is the easiest way to add a splash of modern-rustic charm to any holiday project. And don't worry if the colors of pine cones don't fit with the rest of your home decor? You can always lighten up the brown hue with bleach or white paint (or even colorful paint)—and yes, we'll show you how to do that right here too. Let's get crafting!
