Easy Fall Decorating: Put a Pine Cone On It

So, for several years, birds have been so very “in” for decorating.

So much so that a video was created to further illustrate the idea:

“Put a Bird On it”.

Seriously, if you are someone who enjoys decor – it is super funny and worth the watch, that is if you haven’t already  seen it.

But for fall, I think you can’t go wrong if you…

Anytime fall decorating can be simple, quick and FREE – then it is good by me!

What is more simple, quick and free (unless you have no pine cone bearing trees around – but no fear, do like I did and ask some friends if they didn’t mind if you cleaned up their yards a little bit!) then to…

Put a Pine Cone On It.

You can place them on your mantel

You can make them a little fancier with gold paint…

They can even show up in your bathroom…

They can be used to fill a lamp…

Gather them in a basket on a side table…

Place them with your pumpkin displays for a little more “fallness” – and yes, in my world that is a word.

And you use them to add some depth to fall vignettes.

Don’t be overwhelmed about putting out fall decorations.  I think sometimes we worry about getting it all out only to have to put it away to get started on Christmas.  This is an easy way to bring fall in without it being stressful.

So, what do you think?

Will you put a pine cone on it?

About Finding Home

My name is Laura and I have been running a small interior decorating business since 2004. I have always had a love for decorating but I never fully realized it until about 10 years ago. I live in New York with my husband and two daughters. They support me and encourage me at every turn. I have always loved the “hunt” for the next treasure, especially when you have to get down and dirty to discover it. I feel like it is time to start taking my business in a new direction. I am not sure exactly what that will be, but this blog is about that journey. About finding a sense of home, a place where we belong and can most be ourselves. Thank you for being part of my journey.

  1. funny- i just gathered a ton this weekend around the property.

  2. You have so many wonderful ideas for using nature in Fall decorating! Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos of all the different ways you incorporated pine cones in to your decorating!

  3. That’s it – I’m so doing this! Off to collect some pine cones. They fall into our yard from the neighbors tree. Score!

  4. Laura, this post just hit the mark with me. I love touches of warm fall too but don’t want our home to turn into a Halloween fun house! Those white pumpkins with the gold stems are perfect!

  5. I never did put my pine cones away after Christmas last year. I enjoyed them so much so I just left them piled high in a piece of brown transferware. They still look great with my limited Fall decor. Can’t get any easier than that. Sally

  6. Another thing to miss about NJ … all those free pine cones! I can’t seem to find any in the city. And I actually bought a bag of scented pine cones from JoAnns!

    Your pine cones looks so inspiring. I’m off to put a pine cone on something now …

    :)

  7. I like the look of gilded acorns, I have a few natural acorns amongst fall leaves on my mantle behind some pumpkins, I may gild a few.Thanks for the idea!

  8. I love pinecones! I’ve used them everywhere in my fall decor and will continue to use them through winter.

  9. It’s funny it’s one of those things that we look at on the ground and say must gather them up for our fire starter or for the Christmas decorations …. Not for fall. You said it… why not???? They are great fillers. Now I’m off to the woods to collect some. Linda

  10. Pine cones do shout Autumn all around don’t they.
    Great ideas!
    Thanks,
    T

  11. I love pine cones. I have a huge collection that I use for Christmas. You will see.

  12. Love your natural fall decor. I used White Pumpkins & Pinecones this year too…see my post here:
    http://elegantnest.blogspot.com/2012/09/white-pumpkins-pinecones.html
    Great minds (and Lauras) think alike! :)

  13. I am really loving all the natural and neutral tones this fall, and you’ve captured it beautifully!

  14. I enjoyed the video!! I think people should be able to laugh at themselves. What really got me, was how the guy told her to “quit blowing on everything”. My husband does that! Whenever he’s working on something, or cleaning something, he ends up blowing on it. He’s like a container of canned air!

  15. Laura….I was just thinking about completing my Fall decorating and being so behind on that…and then in a couple of weeks…starting my Christmas decorating….I love pine cones…but do not have any pine trees…I love the many ways you used them in your decor….I so love your mantel…..

  16. Hmmm.. I like it!! I just ‘put a pine cone on it’. Made me think. I always pull the pine cones out with the Christmas things. But you made me get some out. I have added some pine cones to a few things :-) I like it!!
    Thanks for making me ‘put a line cone on it’!!
    Luv your natural Fall decor.
    Cheers, Gee
