   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, the ones on the right look like fully opened pine cones that have lost the bottoms.

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

 Every year when the wind blows in the fall.... yes they are unique, but are a hassle in my driveway and on my paint on my car...

Quoting Bmat:

When I used them in wreaths I wired them. The wreaths are stronger.

Quoting Esmrlda:

 Did you use a hot glue gun?

Quoting mac1940:

I have seen them before and one year collected gobs and gobs of them and made Christmas wreaths for family and friends with them. 

I cut out a heavy cardboard wreath form and hot glued them to it.  Wiring would work too.  They really turn out gorgeous.
