A little Christmas cheer

What with all the tragedy going on in the world today, instead of focusing upon that (because there's enough of that everywhere else online and elsewhere), I thought I'd show a little Christmas cheer. The wreath below was created by a friend of mine after I had picked up 75 pine cones out of the woods (yes, I counted). She used wiring to connect the pine cones to a bare frame, then used a glue gun to snug it all down. Next, she used some gold spray paint to lightly gloss the edges of the pine cones. Finally, she used some fake greenery (it was available) as a kind of backdrop, tying it with wire on the back of the wreath. Below are the results.

Pine cones have such interesting textures and curves. Almost fractal in appearance.
