MP Pinecone Designs







I’m originally from Wheeling, WV and have lived in many places...but now I live in Pittsburgh, PA. Being here is giving me more of an opportunity to be out and about...enjoying what Nature has to offer, and what a better way to celebrate Nature's cast-offs, than to form them into something beautiful to be enjoyed year round.

Losing my job as a proofreader at a patent law firm in New York City, made me realize it was time to get creative again. I went to Art School many years ago and my fingers were itching to get, I started MP Pinecone Designs in January 2009.

Many of my creations are one-of-a-kind.  All of the pinecones are washed & dried before being assembled into a wreath or Christmas decoration & then, coated with a clear acrylic spray so they'll stay fresh for a long time.  It's all about being BACK to NATURE. 

Display the wreaths indoors or outdoors...if out, keep them under an awning & out of the rain. Water will make the cones close up, & even though they will re-open...the integrity of the wreath may change. If a wreath has nuts on it, & your home is in an area where squirrels

roam, just be aware they’ll want to eat them!

My HANDMADE SOAPS & CANDLES, are all thoughtfully handcrafted to

reflect the scents and colors I find in Nature and are a perfect

accompaniment to my other creations.

Please let me know if you have any questions, especially about all the   

arts & crafts fairs that I do. Contact info. is at the bottom of the site.
