Crafting with Nature
Last year, I wrote about crafting magnolia fruit wreaths with magnolia cones. This year we are already starting to collect our favorite southern cones and have started using them for a little fall decorating!
We select only the best shaped cones on our nature walks. Those that have not been broken and still have soft fuzz over them. Magnolia fruit cones hold up beautifully throughout the year, even when exposed to the elements. Our wreaths will be hung up during the holidays, and look just like they did last year when we made them.
Until then we tossed some cones in glass vases with fall colored ribbons and are using them to help bring in the change of season!
Happy Fall Decorating!
