Pine Cone Trees (way 2)

by Anonymous

Well this way looks good but its hard to find an ideal pine cone. You want to find a young pine cone that has all those scales tucked in tight so it looks like the thing is just covered in bumps. If it already has moss or anything that looks halfway descent on it then great, you've got a tree that fell from a tree pre-made. But otherwise you can put model foliage (sold at any sane hobby store) or lichens. ground foam etc. It is the same idea as the pine cone method but you don't have to strip the cone down. And of course, you can put it on a dowel or it looks fine on the ground.
