Let Me Show You How To Make Scented Pine Cones
I love scented pine cones. They are pricey to purchase! Because we have pine cones in our yard, half of the cost is free!
This is so easy and nothing says holiday more than the scent of cinnamon and evergreens.
This process takes a little time to cure(2 weeks).If you do not want to do this natural process, you can purchase the cinnamon essential oil at your craft store.Purchase cinnamon sticks and olive oil.Fill container of sticks with oil.Replace cap. Set aside for 2 weeks to cure.
Pre rinse pine cones.Drain.
Pre heat oven 200 degrees. Place pine cones on a cookie sheet evenly.Bake for 30 min. Cool. Place pine cones in a zip tight bag.For me it worked best to use a spray bottle to spray my mixture into the bag to saturate the cones.You can pour the liquid in as well. Seal your bag, and put away to cure.(Approx. 2 to 4 weeks). This process takes time,but so worth it.
Hmmmmm! The great smell of scented pine cones and evergreens thru out your home Says Welcome Fall and the Holidays.
A Tip (If you do not want the scent of your pine cones strong smelling, cut back on the liquid or use few pine cones to display).You can always store some pre bagged for a later date as the scent fades.
