Dressed Up Pinecones


I had some kind of bug/food poisoning so was looking for something gentle and quiet to occupy Z and E. They sat on the sofa wrapping pinecones in scraps of wool. There's something beautiful about these, I think it's the mixture of natural textures and colours. I'm better now and will use these to make a little mobile to hang above V's cot.

  5. Hi Lorraine, we found ours at Ashton Court by the mansion house around the formal garden bit. You can pop them in the oven on a low heat to dry them out if they are too wet. Good Luck and let me know how you get on!
