Even though we’ve been wrapping up some craft projects for the magazine, we realize the season for crafts is just getting into full swing. When the temperature drops and the days grow shorter, snuggling inside with a hot drink and small creative project can be the perfect way to spend an evening. I’m a big fan of the leather goods designed by Susan Petersen of Freshly Picked, and while browsing her blog I instantly fell for this little leather pinecone tutorial. It’s a perfect fall/winter craft that will look as good sprinkled throughout your home year round as it will on your holiday table or mantel. You can read the full instructions here. If you need something to do this weekend, grab a mug of something warm and your favorite tunes or film and get crafting!
