I really love this look. I'm not a big fan of Christmas-y decor, with ornaments and bows and wreathes, etc. But this is right up my alley! Wintery and lovely without being over the top.

This is a great idea for me! My youngest son and I are always picking up pinecones as we walk and I wanted to keep them but didn't know what to do with them. Now I do! I like the touch of fake snow in the bottom of the one container and the three of varying heights give it the decorator's touch! Bravo! Those memories are now safe!

I love this idea for the holidays, but you can always use this idea for a wedding or a birthday party. A little white paint and some sparkly white or silver glitter and you have a whole different centerpiece for your special day. You could use this outdoors to for a summer function.
