I walked through a few parks on the weekend along the Northern Beaches and saw a TON of pine cones just lying around everywhere. I always wonder why such pretty little things should just wither and waste away in the sun. Just not fair! So I quickly got out my phone, googled "things to do with pine cones" and this fun DIY projectcame up. Needless to say, I made a dash back to the piles of pine cones and started piling them into the back of our car. It's ok people - I'm Asian so I can get away with anything without looking too dodgy!
