MP Pinecone Designs
Nature - Inspired
CANDLES - SOAP - BEARD OIL -WEDDING FAVORS
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. 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 busy...so, I started MP Pinecone Designs in January 2009.
Many of my creations are one-of-a-kind. All of the pinecones are washed, dried and sometimes painted 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 & BEARD OILS 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.
