Tips on How to Cut Pine Cones

The round variety

I’m sure these have a name! I found these pine cones to be very tough and they had to be cut and shaped with garden sheers.

Long Pine Cones

I figured out that I could just twist the tops off of the longer pine cones with my hands. If I twisted one and the top was too small, I tried to use a middle section. Some of mine were so dry they crumbled but I had a bunch so I just grabbed another one.
