Wild Pine Cone Harvest for Olbrich Botanical Gardens Seminar

Jennifer Shea Hedberg | 27 October, 2014

Before the snow blankets the earth, I like to wander around my neighborhood looking for pine cones and other seed pods that I can collect and use all winter long in Globe Ice Lantern Centerpieces. And, fun part is--they can be found just under your feet. Take a new look at the the wildish area in your backyard or by the entrance ramp of a highway. Where you once just saw weeds, might be a weatlh of drying foliage and seeds pods that would be perfect for a rustic looking display.

This morning, I was out gathering pine cones for a seminar that I am leading at Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin on Monday, November 10, 2014.

These small rose-shaped pine cones will be perfect surrounding a beautiful moon-like ice lantern nesttled in, moss, greens and burlap.

If you are planning to be in the Madison area on Monday, November 10, consider registering to learn all about using Globe Ice Lanterns in centerpieces!

Enjoy the Glow!
