Natural Nut and Pinecone Christmas Star

By: Kathleen George for STYROFOAM Brand Foam

Mother Nature provides the materials for this door decoration; assorted nuts and pinecones are glued to a stocking shape cut from a foam sheet. This beautiful holiday decoration showcases subtle beauty and colors of nature.  You can also use this decoration to decorate your space outside as well.  Hang these ornaments from trees or hang them outside your front door to add some color to your winter home landscape.  Easy to make and fun to show off, this project is also great to do with the kids.
