Decorating with Pinecones

We had such fun playing with pinecones at our Christmas Shoot, that it got us thinking about other ways that we could use these little things.

Pinecones are not just a Christmas decoration, they're available all year round, are easy to find and are oh-so-versatile. We love making use of the items around us: not only is it fun to craft pretty things out of nothing, but it's also sustainable. And that is becoming more and more important to many brides when considering their wedding plans.

So.. here are some of our favourite ideas for how to use pinecones at any rustic, natural themed event..

Pinecone place-settings or seating cards
Rustic Wedding Chic

Pinecones in Bouquets
Grey Likes Weddings
Or as a boutonniere -your groom will be happy with something a little more masculine than a flower. 
Ruffled Blog
Pinecone Centrepieces
100 Layer Cake
Wedding Chicks
Pottery Barn
Pinecone Photo Props - How sweet is this?
Green Wedding Shoes
Pinecone themed invitations. 
We love this stamp. It could be used to spread the pinecone theme from your stationery, through to your favours and your place settings.. and more.  
Yellow Owl Workshop
Painted pinecones
If you're not a rustic-girl, these babies can also be easily painted to suit your colour theme.They add brilliant texture to any arrangement.
Oh Joy
There you have it. Would you have a pinecone themed wedding?
We'll show you what we did with pinecones for Christmas in a couple of days when we see the final edit.
