Start collecting pinecones on your next vacation or camping trip! These are SUPER fast to make! The children can help with most of this too. Use up scraps of sport weight yarns and knitting needles, US# 3. Such fun and fast knitting, so you can knit up lots of these to hang on the tree, or place on the dinner table, and decorate with, all around the house! We used a 2 high pine cone, you can vary the size. A good family project!
