Simple DIY Star Shaped Pinecone Ornaments | The Tattered Pew
We love the look of organic decor at Christmas.
So when Kelly shared her unique pinecone ornaments shaped like stars, it was love at first sight!
If you’re lucky enough to have trees that produce pinecones on your property, these pretty ornaments are practically free.
But even if you need to buy pinecones, these ornaments are still so affordable.
They’re pretty on a tree, but you could set these ornaments on a shelf or even string them for a unique garland.
Learn how to make these stars for your home!
