We’re starting to share Christmas ideas earlier this year, but I bet you’re looking forward to this holiday as much as we do! Also, I know that some of you will start decorating for Christmas as early as early December, so this round-up will certainly be useful. Today I want to share some decorating ideas for Christmas and winter, and the main element in them will be a pine cone. I totally like pine cones because nothing else is so natural, affordable and durable. Pine cones can become a main hero in many crafts. If you want to learn more, read on.
The first craft is a simple pine cone garland, for which all you need is string, pine cones and colorful felt balls or pompoms. The idea is to glue them into the pine cones and hang the pine cones on the string.

Painting pine cones is a very calming activity. A faster way to decorate pine cones is to dip the whole thing in paint and let it dry.

The outdoor decor makes it possible to turn your rooms and porches into spooky ones and scare guests and children before entering the house. What are the ideas to decorate these rooms in the best and scariest way possible?
You can buy some skeletons and decorate your nature in a stylish and cool way. You can put one on a chair or bench on your porch and put a cauldron of candy for trick or treating on your hands, or you can place two skeletons that will make a grave in the yard. Another idea is to put several pieces of a skeleton in a cart or in the ground to remind you of scary movies. Attach skeletons to the wall outside of your home so they can climb.
Ghosts are another very popular idea for Halloween decor. Make chicken wire ghosts and cover with cheesecloth, add foam heads. Put them anywhere you want: on swings, on your porch, in your yard, etc. and note that they look really creepy at night in the dark.
Coffins, zombies, vampires, corpses and body parts, ravens and spiders - mix them up to your liking. Create coffins and tombstones in your yard, put witches and skeletons next to them, cover foam to mimic corpses, buy body parts and put them in creepy pumpkins like they are eating them. Scarecrows and fake zombie figures will scare everyone.
