Design*Sponge's DIY Christmas Pinecone Garland

Amy Merrick posted over at Design*Sponge. She came up with her own pinecone garland, And she is showing us how to do it ourselves!
"To make a 6 foot garland, you’ll need about 75 pinecones, wire (I used this paper wrapped variety that looks like twine) and a length of jute twine. Start by cutting 4″ long lengths of wire and wiring each pinecone at the top by simply wrapping the wire around the cone once, so that the wire goes under the ridges. Take a piece of thicker twine and knot a loop at the top. Then attach your pinecones, tightly twisting the wire as you would a twist tie. Travel down the twine, catching the previous cone’s wire with your next twist."
The fun thing about this post is us Oregonians just have to either walk in our front/back yards to find most the materials for this project. Imagine being in Brooklyn, NY where Amy posted this from. She had to of had hers shipped in, or she went on a long nature drive(which isn't sounding half bad right now).
