Finding and gathering the pine cones is half the fun of this project.
This is what a Eastern Hemlock (Tsuga Canadensis) plant looks like. It is native to some parts of Maryland, as well as, much of New England.
I collected these during a visit to NH.
These are simple to make. Tie the pinecones to a string one at a time; working your way along the string.
I don’t think I captured just how cute these swags are but I think you get the idea.
