Fall Pine Cone Cluster

One thing that I have plenty of is pine cones.  I have been trying to find ways to utilize them in different ways and my newest creation is this pine cone cluster for fall.
I went out gather pine cones this morning then baked them for 45 minutes at 250 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then I glued burlap ribbon in different lengths to the top of each pine cone.   
I had some fall colored hydrangeas that were then glued to the top where the ribbon is glued on to the pine cone.  I ran out of hot glue sticks (how unheard of?!) so I had to be creative to put the ribbons together to hang. 
A twist tie came to the rescue!  I just used it to bunch the ribbons together and then used another one to attach the cluster to my vintage gate.  I was going to tie a bow at the top of the ribbon but I attached an orange flower instead. 
This was a fun and fairly quick project to complete.  I have a lot more pine cones so I think a Christmas cluster as well as a winter cluster will be happening.  Who knows what else I might come up with for all of my pine cones!
