My sister moved to a new house this fall.  While I was there helping, I took time to pick pine cones from the trees around her house.  They were green and still closed.  I hot glued them onto a frame and let them dry out.  This caused the pine cones to open and completely fill out.  I really didn't want it to be just for Christmas, but for all winter.   I like the look that it created. 

I found an abandoned birds nest and decided it would make a nice embelishment
