Hi, I'm Linda Hutchinson of L. Hutchinson Designs. Today, I’m going to show you how you can make a centerpiece with pine cones. Here I have a rustic looking pitcher that I picked up at a garage sale. I have some pine cone things that I got at a craft store. It's pine cones painted gold with this tinsel kind of stuff. You can get this at any kind of craft store or decorating store or whatever. Or you can always go out and find the pine cones and put something together yourself if you're feeling really industrious. And I have some wire edged ribbon which is really great to make bows with because it kind if keeps it shape really well, and some scissors. So I'm just going to go ahead and place these in here kind of separated like this, sort of like a fan kind of effect. Then I'm just going to take this gold ribbon, because you have the silver and the gold here. I wanted to pick up the gold down here so I'm going to take this ribbon and just tie it around here. Let me just turn this toward my self for a moment to tie it, and then I will turn it back to the camera. When you're making the bow you may have to play around with it a little bit to get it where you want it to be. And once you get it there though the wire really does kind of hold it in place. Once you have it where you want it you can just take your scissors and cut it off. I'm going to make a V on the end by bending the ribbon in half and using my scissors I'm going to go from the folded part to the not folded part at a diagonal. When you open it, it gives you a little V. I'm going to do the same thing on this side. And there you have a really cute little quick centerpiece involving pine cones. My name is Linda Hutchinson and thank you so much for joining me. Bye bye.
