The wire lets the pine cones toss side to side, letting you adjust where needed.
I found a super sale on pine cones, that smell yummy too. Michaels was clearing out their Thanksgiving pine cones to make room for Christmas pine cones. Nicole said I should have gathered some up from her backyard. I still may do that! :)
I tried some as ornaments too.
I have to explain where I was stumped. I don't know why it took me so long to figure out how to hook them using something stronger than hot glue. In Target, I picked up a pine cone ornament and realized that they drilled into the pine cone. I can do that!?
After drilling I used eye hooks on the flat back pine cones, and made longer wire hooks with the fluffier backed pine cones. Then I added a dab of hot glue into the hole and stuck the wire in. Magic!
I'm sure it's been done before, but I thought it was pretty cool!
If you use eye hooks, make sure that they will fit around whatever wire form you are using.
Here's the wire hook for the "fluffy" backed pine cones.
