I spent the past week working around the house, taking a break, and fiddling with making pinecones out of wool. I wanted to mimic the shape of the cones we find from our jack pines. It took a bit of tweaking, but I finally got something that comes pretty close. I added a spray of "needles" too, for color. They're not exactly like pine needles of course, but I thought they brought to mind that piney look.
