I know, I know what it looks like but.......I did not specify what we were "making" to my kids. I cut a toilet paper roll in half and hot glued the pine cone onto it. I have seen these somewhere in blog land, but cannot find where I first saw them! So, I am sorry for not giving credit. I gave the kids the pine cones, a bowl of shmuzzies, some glue and pieces of a plastic necklace that broke. What they came up with was all them. I asked T if it was a "Christmas Tree" and he said, matter of fact, "It's a Shmuzzy Tree". Well, duh! Of course it is!
