Variation Shared by Stacy Landry: Spray with sealer. Form hanger out of wire and glue to top of pine cone. Decorate your wire with ribbons, bows, etc.

Variation Shared by Derijia: Wrap a string around a pine cone, making a loop to hang it by. Paint a pine cone with a thick coat of paint. Before it dries, roll it in glitter or sprinkle the glitter on it. Allow to dry and then spray with hair spray to set and make shiny.

Variation Shared by C from Tennessee: Apply the glitter to your painted or glue covered pine cone by putting it in a zip-top baggie with glitter!
