   Pine cone flowers?   

 I found these really cool pine cone flowers.  They are pine cones that broke apart and lay like a flower.  So cool, so I collected the ones in the parking lot and will make something out of them someday.  I just thought they were the coolest thing and I have never seen anything like it before. Have you?  I want to make something with them. I have about 8 or 10.  What should I make?  Right now I have them in a ceramic bowl that my Artist friend made for me.

Yes I have. You can spray them if you like, and hot glue a stem to them.

I also used them in pinecone wreaths, they are very pretty in those.

I would put them on  a door wreath or spray paint them and use in a decorator bowl

I have never seen them before....so pretty, I would make a natural wreath with them, perhaps for Christmas ... I wouldn't paint them, but if it's an indoor wreath I would sprinkle them with cinnamon oil to make the whole room smell warm and welcoming .... Have fun working with them!

I have never seen those before.  I would add a stem and put them in a vase.

I've never seen them before but they are gorgeous!  I don't know that I wouldn't leave them right in that bowl.  How much prettier can they get?????   LOL  You might want to spray them with something though to help preserve them.  :)
