You will need a styrofoam cone similar to this one.
I don't know who made the one I used or what size it was. That was last fall, well before blogging. :)
You will also need a fair amount of pine cones (we had big ones on hand), a glue gun and glue sticks, and if I were to do it over again I would wear gloves to keep your hands from getting all chewed up by the pine cones.
