Step 2: Do the same with each strip, then hot glue one on top of the other making an “X” as shown below.
Step 3: Hot glue layered ribbon/gold twine on top of leaves, then squeeze together in the center.
Step 4:Turn pinecone upside down and hot glue leaves/ribbon to the flat bottom of the pinecone.
Step 5: Finally, add faux pine sprigs, a few faux berries and a spiral stem with hot glue, then take 1 more strip of ribbon or twine, loop and hot glue into place at the top.
