We are going over the river and through the woods to see family today. Needed a last minute craft for the kids. Decided to make one up,using pine cones that we collect from our yard. I love the smell of Nutmeg but Cinnamon or any other spice can also be used to match the holiday you are making them for.
Today I will be using dried, grated orange peel and grated cloves on some with the kids.
These can be used as ornaments, name tag holders for your holiday table, or clustered in a glass bowl with ornaments for a last minute hostess gift. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
