It’s that time of year to deck your halls with boughs of holly. But if you don’t have holly on hand, you can always use pinecones. Pinecones offer a great way to create some DIY holiday decor.

And the best part is, they don’t cost a thing. Just grab them from outside your home!

Combine with some items from the dollar store and you can create some really beautiful holiday pieces for your home. Your friends and family will think they were store-bought.

Here are 12 cute and simple Christmas decorations to make with pinecones:

1) Pinecone Bouquet

Paint some pinecones white and red. Glue them to long, thin dowels and place them in a vase as you would a bouquet.
