Christmas, the season for evergreens…
So, Thanksgiving is done and as we are recovering from our comfortable turkey coma, it’s time to start getting ready for Christmas. Consequently, we also have to ponder on the themes of decorations we’d like to make this year. To this end, since there is an obvious association between the Yuletide spirit and evergreens, why not consider some pine cone patterns? Overall these are quite easy, very thematic and definitely very attractive decorations that will not only match your tree, but be a great stocking stuffer as well. Moreover, you can combine them with some pine scents easily available from local craft stores. In this way, they’ll add that “foresty”ambiance to any Christmas get up. Of course, a pine cone is a pinecone, and you may think they’re a bit ho-hum. However, have a look below, and think of the customizing possibilities.
Or first pine cone ornament is a simple hanging one. Not only is it quite realistically shaped, it’s also a great way to use up some earth tone yarn ends that aren’t always immediately useful.

Crochet Spruce Cones
Next, this pine cone ornament is actually a spruce cone. Like its namesake, it is dense and quite smoothly ovoid, which would contrast so nicely with the more traditional pine cone.
