Step 1: Cut pieces of paper to 1" squares.
Step 2: Fold two corners into the centre to give a point.
Step 3: Keep going with this so you have enough to start sticking. I used a 120mm polystyrene egg and used just under two sheets of A4 paper.
Step 4: Add a small amount of glue to the top of the section.
Step 5: Start at the bottom and stick each piece down overlapping each other slightly.
Step 6: Keep going with this until you get to the top, if adding a ribbon loop add this before covering the top completely.
Step 7: Finish the pine cone by decorating with embellishments of your choice.
