This type of pinecone bouquet ornament is also sometimes called a pinecone kissing ball, though I have no idea why. It’s a popular DIY project. Apparently you just glue pinecones to a styrofoam ball and splatter with some white paint.

Create your own paper flowers.
These geo planters started out as decorative tabletop objects.
The pots were constructed with aluminum tape.
A cone planter sits in a rusted, perforated tube.
The geo forms at the top were connected and got a hook for hanging.
Succulents and cacti finish the look.

When I happen upon a product, I occasionally learn, to my surprise, that it’s a DIY project. It’s amazing what people have wherewithal (and time!) to concoct. I save the fun, innovative ideas to my “Crafty” Pinterest board, (there’s about 300 so far), but sometimes it needs a wider shout-out. So, I’ve added a new column to the blog, called “Crafty.” I likely won’t be detailing the steps (unless I’ve come up with and/or executed the project; but really, how likely is that?), but I will certainly provide the link so you can visit the blogger who put in the time and effort.
