I gathered quite a few pine cones last autumn and I had big plans for them. But I didn’t get to use them much this winter (except for the Trolls ornaments and the snow friends). With Christmas just around the corner, I decided to make one last pine cone ornament.
Pine cones usually get turned into snowman, reindeer, gnome or owl ornaments. I wanted to try something new. So I came up with the idea for a pine cone lion ornament.
