This last Christmas when I made my holiday tree decorated in all paper ornaments, I made some orbs that were covered in little paper circles. I kept seeing them as a very round paper pine cone and thought how cute it would be to make some in more of the cone shape. Pine cones are great decor items for Christmas for sure and they are also very woodsy for a Summer of Fall woodland theme. I made these gold metallic paper cones for my woodland table top theme mixing them with my West Elm silver fox and pretty recycled glass vases filled with pine branches, wild flowers and china berry branches. To make these cones, I started with round 4 inch foam balls, the Martha Stewart Crafts 1 inch circle punch, Gold Leaf metallic paper from paper-papers.com and my hot glue gun. For my table scape I added the pine branches to the top of each cone that can be removed later. This project is so easy and fun it could be a kid’s craft as well. I will definitely be using these for my woodland theme and for this upcoming Christmas. Enjoy! ~ Lia
