I am not sure what you're talking about 'thorns' on a pinecone. I've never seen thorns on a pinecone but if you mean the tips of each layer/leaf then just trim them off with sharp scissors.

I have discovered that it is easiest to remove the thorns needles from the pine cones with a large pair of finger nail clippers! I sit with a box in front of me and clip them off while watching tv.

Its better to bake them first so you dont end up with a spider crawling up your arm!! Personal experience talking here! Good luck with your crafts!

I guess there are many types of pine or conifer cones, So not sure if your cones are tightly held together or loose and fall apart, but could you scrape them on rough cement to knock the spikes off?

You could pick up a few garden gloves for the kids or file/trim down the sharp edges.

I had to trim 20 for a children's craft. I used cuticle scissors, very effective!
