Candleholder
Pinecones can make lovely candleholders, and all you will need for this homemade wedding favor is pine cones, ribbon, a hot glue gun, hot glue sticks, scissors, and a jar. Start by thoroughly cleaning and drying the jar to remove any oil your skin has left behind.
Run a line of hot glue down the length of a pine cone and press it onto the side of the jar. You can arrange the pine cones horizontally or vertically, but remember to cover the entire jar with them. When the glue has cooled, wrap the jar with the ribbon, and tie the ribbon into a bow. Add a drop of glue to the back of the bow and press it into the pine cones.
