Pine Cone Ornaments

I have been making a lot of ornaments for the Craft Fair this month.  I love making these pine cones.  I made large ones last year which I display as part of my fall home decor.  You can find the link HERE.  I also made these pine cone ornaments last year but I don’t think I blogged about them.  Here are this years creations.

White Pines ~ Pinecones ~ CatScrapbooking.comDon’t you just love these?  I am sure you are now asking the question how can I make these… am I right?  Well let me tell you.  First you will need to start with these Styrofoam eggs 2 1/2″ X 1 7/8″.Eggs for Pinecones ~ CatScrapbooking.comYou will need lots of strait pins.  Then cut the paper you wish to use into 7/8″ x 7/8″ squares.  Then fold two corners in to make a point.  Next you will overlap the squares, refer to THIS LINK as I shows how to assemble and overlap squares.White Pines ~ Pinecones Ornament ~ cut the holly leaves with a SVG file on my Silhouette.  I found the holly at Hobby Lobby and it adds a nice dimension to the ornament.  I used hot glue to attach the ribbon, holly and leaves.
