Making a pine cone pick is a very easy and can be done quickly with a bit of practice. Once wired the pick can be used to decorate a wreath by pushing the wire through the base or used to tightly secure pine cones to decorations where glue will not work.
Start with a pine cone and one length of florists stubbing wire with a hook on one end.
Follow the natural spiral of the pine cone until the wire is at the centre of the base then bend the wire so it is in line with the pine cone like a long stalk. Done!
