I love this can!!! I need to make one now. I also collect pinecones. I have bags of them everywhere. Wherever I go, if there are pinecones on the ground I have to take some home. I get the "obsession" from my grandmother because she loves pinecones. My husbands says that I need to use them or get rid of them but they are too pretty to use :D But with this can I can have them sit on my countertop and look pretty.
