Year round crate filled with different things for each season. Love this simple holiday decorating / repurposing idea: Fill a crate with jars, candles, and greenery and/or pine cones. (via Kaleidoscope of Colors)
Reuse an old tree to make a log pathway in your garden. Good use of "yard" trees and other wood that can't be milled; works much better in climates without termites. Good drainage under the log rounds will make the path last longer.
Spray paint pine cones to have that mercury glass look to them. Use Krylon Looking Glass Mirror-Like Paint on pinecones, add a little fresh or faux greenery. I like the idea of spray painting the pine cones.even for other décor ideas!
