Pine cones are natural, inexpensive and charming items to use in your Christmas decorating projects. They work great for country Christmas decorating ideas or if you just want to add a more rustic style to your holiday décor. There are several easy ways to work pinecones into your holiday decorating themes.
Make a pine cone wreath. Simply use several different sized pine cones, thread them into a circle tightly together and bind them to a grapevine wreath or any wreath of your choice. Tie a pretty red ribbon, attach red berries and you have a country style Christmas wreath.
Another great idea is to dip pine cones in red or green paint, sprinkle silver glitter on them and let them dry. Tie red ribbons and sprigs of evergreen to the cones and hang them on your windows, doorknobs or even drape them over the back of dining chairs for a festive look.
Do you want to add a unique twist to your Christmas tree decorating this year? Traditional Christmas trees are always beautiful, but there is nothing wrong with stepping off the beaten path and choosing a Christmas tree theme that fits your personality or are adorned in your favorite things.

The front door of homes is often left neglected during the holidays, but it should not be so. The entry way to your home is the place your guests will get the first impression of you, your home and your overall personality. You do not want your guests to feel uninvited during the holidays.
Add some festivity to your home and create a Christmas door. There are several ways to create an inviting front door for the holidays that is sure to leave a lasting impression. Hang a beautiful Christmas wreath and add more life to your door by draping lit garland over the door frame and allow it to swag down each side.
Add bows, Christmas bells or Christmas balls to your garland to finish the classy look. Use holiday style foil or paper and encase your front door. Shinny designs such as red, silver, gold or green add an elegant touch.
Accessorize the look by adding poinsettia on each side of your door, large nut crackers, Santa sleighs, toy bags, baskets of gifts or other Christmas themed décor to complete the look.
