Instructions:

I began by measuring the space for my garland and cutting my twine so that it would fit the space. If you don’t know the size of the space, I would say a 6 foot garland is a good place to start!

I cut 5 inch piece of twine and placed them about 6 inches apart all along my garland. Of course the length of your twine and how far apart you space them is completely up to you!

I tied a knot in the very end of each of my short pieces of twine. This will give the glue a bigger area to cling to, and make a better connection with the pinecone.

I made a pea size dollop of hot glue on the bottom of each pinecone, then I held the knotted string in the glue until it cooled most of the way, about 1 minute.

I repeated this for every short piece of twine, and here’s what I ended up with. I may not look like much but it’s so very elegant when it’s strung up on the mantle!
