Pine Cones

I know it seems silly to actually BUY pine cones but these were on after Christmas clearance and I couldn't resist. I always "bake" the cones I collect in a warm oven for an hour or more to kill off any insects living inside so this saved that step.
This is a fairly easy project made easier if you have a hot glue gun. I wound two strands of Christmas candle decorating garland around the finished cone tree and studded it with some pearls and pins. The tree topper is a snowflake rhinestone from last year's Stampin' Up holiday catalog. I stocked up on those beauties, my favorite SU embellishment ever!
