Bring The Outdoors In With These Pine Cone Projects

After months of waiting, it’s finally Fall!

We are so ready, you guys.

We couldn’t be more ready if we were hooked up to a pumpkin spice latte IV drip, wearing twenty over-sized sweaters, and petting woodland animals in the middle of a forest.

We want you to be ready too, so we have complied this very helpful list of pine cone crafts for you to do over the weekend. Have these on our desk by Monday for an A in Autumn Preparedness.
