Make pine-cone Christmas decorations

by Adrienne Wyper
Getty - decorated pine cones to make - Make it a modern Christmas - Christmas craft - Craft -

Attach the decorative sprigs and hanging loops to the same end of the pine cone, or opposite ends - it's up to you. These look particularly good strung on a tree in the garden.

You will need

• natural raffia or string
• pine cones
• sprigs of holly, ivy or evergreen foliage
• florist's wire
• rosehips or other red berries (if the holly has no berries)

Wrap wire around the stem of a sprig of holly or ivy that's longer than the stem, wiring in a rosehip or two if necessary. Wind around the scales of the pine cone to secure.

Take a length of raffia or string and tie the loose ends around the scales of the cone, to make a hanging loop. If you want the foliage and the loop at the same end of the cone, you can wrap the wire around the foliage and the string together.
