Notes:

Found this today at work, would like to know what it is as appears to be damaging plant. One cocoon was way off the plant; how did the critter move the plant pieces way over there? Sorry about picture rotation, extra challenging?

    Could it be the Evergreen bagworm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evergreen_bagworm? I remember seeing these growinup, usually on cedars or junipers.

    I get good results by picking them off. They can certainly make one of those shrubs unsightly.

    Looks like a bagworm. They do damage some conifers.

    Perhaps they’re bagworms. Spruce are one of their hosts and the one on the fence just missed it’s mark, but was close enough. Here’s a link for more information.
