Pine cones seem like a natural choice for country decor--decorations in floral displays, wreaths, crafts, and even scented holiday decor.

I have a hanging planter basket of cones in silver, gold leaf, and bright red paint. a few glass balls look nice in the arrangement.

Great idea. I think I'll try doing this to make scented pinecones.
