What a cute pinecone candle holder that can be used thru the fall and winter for the holidays and winter. I like that all you need to do is change the candle colors. You can choose any but I think I will go with Orange for Halloween and Thanksgiving,Red,Green or white for Christmas and leave white in winter and may even add some colors on the pinecones aand maybe glitter for pizazz. Great project.

A little more color needs to be added to give it pizzaz. Perhaps some bows at the base. I am thinking of using it for an advent wreath. It would be very pretty, easy to make and very inexpensive for me because I live in the middle of a bunch of pine trees.

Looks easy to make and would make a great centerpiece.

doesn't seem to be that complicated but also doesn''t look very interesting won't keep Dylan occupied

HI, I think this would be good in sliver as will as gold. Spray some of the glitter spray on it and make it really shine...
