Ribbon on Pinecones

On Monday, I baked my pinecones and on Tuesday I added some sugar and silver spice (post coming soon).

Last night I dressed them up!

Here’s what I used:

Drill / with drill bit

Eye Hooks

Awesome pinecones

I used a drill bit that was the same diameter as the threaded area on the hook.  Pre-drill the end of the pinecone, about half the distance of the threaded area of the screw.  Now you’re ready to add the hook.

I used an assortment of ribbons.  

I am in love with Peacocks.

Hopefully my tree will reflect that 🙂

I added bows,
