Today is day two of Five Days of Felt here on T&T and this is by far one of my favorite felt projects I’ve ever seen! Thanks to Family Circle and Suzonne Stirling of Urban Comfort for sharing the tutorial and pattern for how to make these little woodland pine cones! I’m hoping to make loads of these over the holidays so fingers crossed I can find the time.

My mother in law, Marilyn, had this idea last year but I never had the time to make one. I had completely forgotten about it until last week when I saw (and smelled) those cinnamon scented pine cones that pop up this time of year. Well I bought a bag of them and the rest of the materials on the spot and I’m just thrilled with how it turned out! It was so easy to do and now the house smells like cinnamon! See below for instructions on how to make your own!

Also, I spotted this door decoration that uses the same materials that would make a lovely companion to the garland. Instead of stringing the pine cones to the ribbon simply tie a ribbon to each hook then tie all the ribbons at the top and hang!

What You’ll Need:
Pine Cones
Ribbon
Screw Hooks
Hole Punch
Scissors

Instructions:
1. Begin by measuring your mantel or space that you’d like to hang your garland and cut your ribbon. Remember to leave extra for hanging. Once you’ve determined the length, space your pine cones out as you like on a flat surface. The pine cones I used were fairly large so I kept about 4 inches between each one. On the back of the ribbon discreetly mark where each pine cone will go, then punch a hole with a small craft punch. I used an 1/8″ round circle punch like this one.

2. Once you know how many pine cones you’ll need, screw in one screw hook into the top of each pine cone. This takes a little practice and you may need a little elbow grease but once you get the hang of it it goes pretty quickly.

3. Poke each hook through the hole you’ve made in the ribbon and hang! Easy as pie and something that will last for seasons to come!

I’m loving all of these white porcelin pieces. Just when I think I’ve seen enough I come across another one I just can’t live without. I think the feathers would make the sweetest tree ornaments and the keys would make a thoughtful gift to newlyweds. Personly, I think all of these would be the perfect gift for me! Hee hee! 😉 Let’s hope the hubby reads this post!
