This has to be one of the cheapest, cute decorations I have made this year. Just simply collect pine cones from your local woods, park etc. wash them in soapy water and leave to dry. Then paint them in shades of colours to match your Christmas decor, I used matt emulsion tester pots of paints from my local DIY store. I also PVA glued a few and sprinkled them in coarse glitter to give them an icy effect.
