STEP 1 Holding the pinecones at a distance of 10 to 12 inches, cover them with spray glue.

STEP 2 While the pinecones are still drying, sprinkle them with glitter.

STEP 3 Let dry for 15 to 20 minutes.

STEP 4 Once dry, tie a velvet ribbon and bow around each pinecone, leaving a long amount of ribbon at the end so you can hang them around the house. Try hanging the cones off the fireplace mantel or in a front window, or use them as ornaments on your tree.
