  • Looking for ideas on what to do with pine cones.

    I have a pile of pine cones that I’m busting to bin but I’m meeting with resistance. Is there something I can do with them to make them more ‘attractive’?

      This is what my son did with my pinecones, we have a family of hedgehogs, I also dip my smaller pinecones into fat, then sprinkle them with bird seeds, to hang out in the garden.

        Oh, how cute! What are the heads made of?

          The heads are bits of wood that he has shaped to look like faces, then just glued them on.

      We spray paint ours in gold or silver and use them for Christmas decorations.
