Beautiful Pinecone Craft – Top 10 Of Best Crafts For Stunning Home Decor

For this weeks Top 10 In Craft, It’s all about making beautiful pinecone craft that make for stunning home decor.

Such an incredible creation of nature, they’re everywhere, especially in the spring. But what is their purpose? The species of tree called conifers create them.

They are the reproductive organs of the tree, believe it or not! They’re in charge of creating the seeds, and when the time is right, they open, releasing the seeds.

So many crafts can be done with pinecones. I have two particular favorites of the crafts in this list. The Glittered pinecones are a beautiful and easy craft. More ambitious, and for those who have a bit more time, the pinecone cross stitch is a perfect idea.

But first a little progress report of my own…

Relaxation and knitting. This quote, sums it up beautifully… “Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either.” - Elizabeth Zimmermann.

On My Needles

What I have been doing this week, is adding some new goodies to my Gifts For Knitters post.

I am feeling very neglectful of my knitting lately.

Where I am at the moment in Spain, doesn’t have a yarn store, so I haven’t found any yarn that inspires me.

I just have to live vicariously through the wonderful knitters online for now.
