1. Decorate one pine cone at a time. Cover work area with a plastic bag or tarp. In a well ventilated room, spray the first pine cone with the glue spray. Sprinkle the faux snow over the entire pine cone. Place the pine cone on the plastic bag to dry. Once it is completely dry, gently shake the pine cone to remove excess faux snow.
2. Cut a piece of ribbon that is approximately nine inches in length. Glue one end of the ribbon to the top, center of the pine cone. Glue the other end of the ribbon next to the beginning piece of ribbon. This is the hanger for your pine cone ornament.
3. Glue berries on top of the pine cones where the ribbon pieces have been glued. Glue dried florals and baby's breath throughout the berries, and the top of the pine cone.
These ornaments also look stunning as a decoration on Christmas packages, or hung closely together across a fireplace mantle.
