It seems I am a growing minimalist for simple, frugal living. That's why I love this pine needle garland. Our neighbor has some pine trees and the needles fall in our yard (so do the pine cones). Although this is great for December decorating, I think it would also be great for January and snow decorating. I think it would be great just taped along the edge of a shelf.
I can also see just creating this with the fingers to be therapeutic, sort of like the adult coloring book trend that is so big right now and growing.
