Nature’s gifts – free decorative objects for the home
The air is definitely feeling fresher and as I was walking along the coast path the other day I saw one of my favourite decorative nature’s gifts… the trusted old pine cone. So simple, natural and rustic. For me it signifies the time to change deco arrangements at home and start thinking about cosying up for autumn. So I spent a while last night changing things around and thinking about creative ideas for how to use them within the house. I haven’t yet gathered enough cones to create all the things I want to make, so I’ll have to go out for a few more walks first but in the meantime I thought I’d share this idea below.
Quick and easy to make. You could use any shape, size or colour frame. Just hang one cone for impact or more like the one featured here. Use ribbons that co-ordinate with your decor. Why not suspend them with clear fishing wire so they look like they are suspended in mid-air. Oh the options are endless! For how to recreate the design above click here. I’ll share my makes soon but in the meantime I’ll keep gathering… Oh and if you’re starting to think about decorating for Christmas why not check out my Pinterest boards Christmas Decor and Christmas Makes which is where I’m pulling together all sorts of inspiring looks to help create a stuning, simple, Scandi look festive home. AND for even more ideas I’m in the process of writing a guide to decorating for Christmas for Devon Life magazine, which will be on shelf late November…watch this space *smile* www.homerestyler.co.uk
