Pinecone Centerpiece

About: I have been sewing and crafting for several years, my children are grown so now I have lots of time to be creative. I enjoy photography, cooking, cake decorating, painting and sharing my projects with others.

Here is a simple idea for an easy decoration. If you can gather some pinecones, you can do this in an afternoon. It makes a colorful display for a porch or table.
