Instruction:

I started out by choosing a wired ribbon, which just means that it has a very thin wire running along the edge, so it holds it’s shape very well. This gave me some darling little bows, as you can see!

Next, I made some twine loops and glued them onto the bottom of my pinecones. I wanted to make sure that the glue bonded well, so I didn’t put it right into the middle of the cone, because there was a better place on the edge. But it will all be covered up by the bow and won’t matter one bit.

Next, I poppped a fresh nickel sized dollop of glue on the bottom of the pinecone and held the bow in place while the glue cooled, about 2 minutes.

This is super easy, but remember that it’s important to hold the bow in the right position while the glue cools, or else you might end up with some wonky bows!
