DIY Scented Pinecones - Use only opened (and therefore seeded) pinecones. Bake on foil lined cookie sheet at 200 for 30 mins to kill the cooties and melt off the sap. Cool completely. Throw in plastic bag with 20-30 drops essential oils of choice. Seal and let sit for 5-10 days (patience!). Will last for years. Thank you Peaches!
Image inspiration! Create a scavenger hunt for a hike during which you collect a variety of pine cones which you later use to create a piece of art for the home or classroom using string and a fallen branch (which can also be collected on our hike). Talk about nature as art and/or diversity in nature.
Easy enough to do yourself. This garland is made from Australian Black pinecones, and is perfect for hanging on a mantel, draped on a piano, or adorning your christmas tree. The pinecones are sprayed white and hung with fabric ties on a red rope. Measures approximately 7.5ft.
