Here is my original inspiration picture from Twig & Thistle. She used what I call "question mark hooks" to hang the pine cones but I only had one of those on hand, obviously not enough. I ended up using pushpins instead and then punched a whole smaller than the top in my ribbon so that it would stay in place.
With the way I hung them it kind of looks like the pine cones are floating from far away. But I'm ok with that.
One of these days, I'll develop the patience to wait and take pictures when it's lighter inside :)
