What you'll need:
-   Twine
-   6 bleached pinecones
-   Fishing line
-  1 Spruce branch

How to make it:

Step 1: Cut six piece of twine and tie one to each pinecone.

Step 2: Tie a piece of fishing line to both ends of the spruce branch and hang.

Step 3: Tie the ends of the twine along the branch so the cones hang at varying heights.
