4 Natural DIY Holiday Decorations

2. Pine Cones

Pine cones are another natural material that makes a lovely garland. Just use natural twine to tie knots around the tops, and you’re ready to string it over a doorway or along a wall that needs some holiday cheer.

I also love this pine cone chandelier from Dollar Store Crafts! Her directions call for faux flowers, but you could use dried flowers instead to make this an all natural project.
