Gather (or purchase) pine cones.
If using freshly harvested cones, be sure to set them in a warm place for 7 days, both to dry and fully open up.
Cut a 6 inch piece of cotton string.
Tie one end of the string around the top of your first cone, being sure to slip it between the scales so it isn't noticeably visible.
Place your second cone next to the first and tightly tie it around the top with string as well.
Trim off loose ends of cotton string.
Cut blue ribbon to length, then slip it between the two cones, looping around the cotton string.
Pull the ends up and tie in a knot or bow.
Cut your lace ribbon to length and form a bow around the blue ribbon, just above the tree cones.
Trim tails at an angle and adjust bow as needed.
