Pinecone Bows!Using Nature’s Poop to Bring Pretty to Presents | The Art of Doing StuffThe Art of Doing Stuff
3 months ago I sat straight up in bed and said “Pinecone bows” out loud. It wasn’t the weirdest thing I’d ever done in bed, but it was up there. I knew, like the time I apparently pushed the fella right out of bed, I would forget this in the morning. So I got out of bed, walked over to the desk and wrote down “Pinecone Bows” on an old Jumbo Video receipt. Yeah. That old. I also wrote down Push fella out of bed again.
I kept that little Jumbo Video receipt to remind me that when the time came (the time being Christmas) I should make some bows out of some hot glue, 4×6 index cards, twine and acorns. No, no. Pinecones.
