My mom showed my sister and I how to make pinecone package ties when we were kids, and we used them as Christmas tree ornaments. I think they make a nice substitute for a bow on a gift, and the recipient can reuse them as decoration.
It’s easy—just cut a length of ribbon about 6 inches long, and hot glue a pinecone to each end. Using another couple of lengths of ribbon, tie two small bows. Hot glue the bows over the spot where the ribbon and pinecone are glued together for a finished look. There you have it—they look great on packages, bottles of wines, or the Christmas tree!
