It was extremely simple to make. Literally all I did was hot glue the pinecones onto the wreath. It smells good because the bag of pinecones had cinnamon sticks in it as well.

There are plenty of things you can do this Thanksgiving season to make it a “green” one.
- When shopping for food bring a reusable bag
- Plan meals ahead of time so you don't over buy
- Try to buy local, seasonal and organic food
- Shop at farmers markets and support local shops. Houston has a ton of great places to pick up local foods. Some of my favorites are The French Bakery, Revival Market and House of Pies
- Try to buy items that do not have a whole lot of packaging
- Stay at home with family
- If you're hosting Thanksgiving, ask guests to bring their own to go containers
- Don’t use paper plates and plastic utensils. Break out the china, silverware, cloth napkins, etc.
- Try to buy turkeys grown without hormones and antibiotics
- Recycle your glass, plastic and aluminum foil
- Recycle the turkey fat
- Donate leftovers to a shelter
- Compost your scraps
- VOLUNTEER at a local shelter
- Make your own decorations, reuse the ones you have or buy some from a resale shop
- BE THANKFUL

I know this is coming so late tonight, but Happy Veterans Day! Thank you to all the men and women who have served for our country, we couldn't be more appreciative.
My grandfather, father, father in law and cousin have all served in the past.
