Christmas DIY Inspiration Nr.11

Pinecones are so perfect for Christmas or winter decoration.

PetitSourirePinecones

You can easily find them everywhere. Isn’t it nice to have a walk with Your family, enjoy a beautiful day outside and gather some pinecones?

You can paint them in white for some winter wonderland feeling in Your home. For a festive mood You can paint them in a gold.

But You can also let them stay in their natural way.

You can create Your own little forest.

Or use pinecones as a table decoration in the Christmas season.

They can serve as a card holder.

Christmas DIY Inspiration Nr.8

Only few days are left to 1.Advent!!!

Are You looking forward?

If You need an idea how to decorate Your advent wreath I would like to show You one of my favourite wreathes I have ever made.

This was my wreath from 2015. In those days it was really a unique one. Today You can find many bouquets with eucalyptus and ranunculus. But I still very in love with this combination.
