It looks like a giant seed pod -from what I do not know.
What I would do - spray paint it gold, tie a gold bow around the neck and stick it in a pot with greenry.

I think maybe a magnolia pod? And you could use it for making a small dried pineapple ornament?

That is indeed the seed pod from a magnolia tree... I have a HUGE one in my front yard and see tons and tons of them. The seeds you would find in those empty areas most likely would have been red.

We use them for all sorts of crafts in the south. If you get them early, before the seeds are gone, they're beautiful to spray gold, wipe the paint away from the red seeds, and then layer them in a bowl with small glass ornaments and those huge,glossy, gorgeous magnolia leaves.
