    I love these and I love the idea of a bunch of them in a bowl, maybe on the back of the piano. I wonder if they would work with heavier fabric, maybe use a bigger base.

  37. Nancy D. says:

    Great idea!

  38. Cricket says:

    This is one project I’m going to have to try. I love that you can make them in different colors and they will be seasonally applicable for Halloween right through Christmas. The hydrangeas that we have had in a vase for a month are getting a little tired. Time to whip up some pine cones!

  39. Cat says:

    it’s lovely and the fabric is so nice too !

  40. Alli says:

    Goodness, this is adorable! If I can figure out how to make it without the pins (there’s no way my two-year-old isn’t going to try to pick it up and throw it around), I want to make a bunch. 🙂

  41. I’d love to make those, but truthfully I’m a bit scared. They are so beautiful, I can’t imagine mine would look near as good! Thanks for the link.

  42. Meagan says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! So pretty and festive and easy!

  43. Lori says:

    Super cute! My friend learned how to make these when she was little and taught me last year. She used oval-shaped styrofoam (so it’s more pinecone shaped) and ribbon (still a lot of folding and pinning, but saves time for cutting!). 🙂

  44. Jacque says:

    I went and checked out the tutorial, and now have bookmarked it! Thanks for a super idea for holiday decorating!

  45. Cindy says:

    Lovely! I need to make some to decorate for Thanksgiving.

  46. Fenna says:

    nice ornaments–very creative!

  47. Tiara says:

    Love it

  48. Alethea says:

    Wow, those are pretty and intricate!

  49. My grandma made a lot of these but they disintegrated over time (kids, curiosity, bad storage…). I’m so glad I have a pattern to make them myself!

  50. Diana says:

    Love them! I think this may be a project in the coming weeks!
