My Mom used to make BEAUTIFUL pinecone wreaths! I used to think she was a little crazy when she’d pull the car over and say, “Everyone out, help me gather these pinecones!” anytime we’d pass a pine tree! I guess it’s true when they say you become your mother because I am now that crazy lady!I lived in Oklahoma for 3 1/2 years before I noticed the beautiful pinecones or acorns that fell from the trees this time of year! On my way into the doctor’s office one day, I noticed HUNDREDS of big beautiful acorns under some trees. I shamelessly asked the nurse for a bag to collect them in and and then tried to ignore the strange stares I was getting as I grabbed handfuls of acorns and shoved them into my bag on my way out, so worth it! Here is my loot! I would have grabbed more, but my bag was starting to spill over!
