    I made these this year and they came out great! I actually used gold pine cones that came from some sprigs on sale at my local craft store. Everyone loved them!

    I made these last year for place settings at Thanksgiving. Everyone loved them and took them home as a momento too! Very easy to make and the pine cones came from my own back yard!
