OMG ADORABLE!!! I love them – they add such whimsy and character!!

You know, I know that around me, Michaels and other craft stores sell bags of pinecones all the time!

Here is from Amazon:

Seriously, google ‘bag of pine cones’ and there is tons of stuff that comes up!  Please let us know how they turn out if you diy!

Those are REALLY cute! I feel like you’d have to dissect the pinecone to make them lay flat like that, but I imagine with a bag of pinecones, a boxcutter, and a hot glue gun, you could get it sorted out with a few trial runs.

@bakerella:

there are several different types of pine cones (based on which species it came from) and the one’s in the OP’s picture are fairly squat to begin with (whole) so I doubt it would take much work to get the desired effect, as it looks like the picture is showing the bottom of the cone (where it would attach to the branch) facing out. So Only the top (conical part) would be lobbed off.

OP:

If you do get some cones to DIY make sure they are dry before you start working with them. The insides of each cone are loaded with sap and pollen which can be very sticky. To get sap off a knife or box-cutter try rubbing alcohol.

They look like a slice off the bottom of a Siberian pine cone to me.
