How to make pine cone pumpkins

Simply, flip the pine cone over and lace the ends into the holes, making note to crisscross the pipe cleaners. You can add a dab of hot glue, but may not necessary.

Once you’re happy with the amount of pipe cleaners, push down at the center to create your stem and wrap a green pipe cleaner around the nub.
