Nine Fine Ways to Incorporate Pine

Pine needles and pinecones are excellent to work with if you're on a budget for your holiday party. These natural beauties can be found in some backyards but are also extremely inexpensive at craft stores. You can make them the center of attention or have them hang subtly in the background. So if you're hosting a holiday party this winter, we've got some awesome ways to incorporate pines!

1. Simple pinecones as placecard holders

“Most people would put them in a bowl or on the tree, but I chose to isolate them as special, beautiful objects,” says Brinson of Kasler’s pinecones, hanging alongside other keepsakes on a branch.

4. Incorporate pine needles right into your favors
