When I saw this photo of Sweet Pea's front door I instantly wanted to try it for myself.
Believe it or not, I could not find pinecones. It was crazy! I have pine trees all around. Ironman said maybe they don't drop their cones until the spring. Maybe.....
I did manage to find several small ones.
They were so soft I did not need to use a drill to make a hole for the eye hook. I just pushed the hook in and twisted it. A couple of the pinecones couldn't take the pressure and crumbled in my hand.
This wasn't going good!!
I had some baby blue ribbon, but not enough to tie all these pinecones.
I had some burnt orange - but that seemed to Autumn-ish.
I had red - but that seemed to Christmasy.
I had white - but my front door is white.
I had black but........... nope.
So I settled for the yellow.
I tied each pinecone and hung the decoration.
But the yellow ribbon seemed one dimensional against the white door.
Happy New Year's Eve.
