How to Make Cinnamon Scented Pinecones

Do you love buying those bags of pinecones that smell so good - you can't wait to get home to begin sprinkling them throughout?

These are an absolute must have in my home during the winter. The stores seem to only have them around the holidays - then they vanish. Which brings me to telling you how excited I am to share this with you today.

No more not having these wonderful pine cones throughout winter!

  • Pinecones

  • Cinnamon essential oil

  • Resealable food storage bag

  • Small spray bottle

  • Clear dry craft glue

  • Disposable craft brush

  • Ground cinnamon

  • Airtight container (optional)

If you've gathered your own pine cones instead of purchasing them from a craft store, you'll have to prep them first. Lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake for about an hour on the middle rack of your oven at 200 degrees F. This will cause tightly-closed pinecones to open up as well as kill bugs and/or bacteria that may have hitched a ride on them to your home. Let the pinecones cool completely before moving on to one of the methods below.

  1. Add 20 drops of cinnamon essential oil to a spray bottle
  2. Add approximately 1/8 cup of water to the spray bottle and shake really well
  3. Put pinecones into a resealable plastic bag and spray them with your cinnamon mix
  4. Shake the bag to help distribute the cinnamon scent onto the pinecones
  5. Seal and let fragrance infuse. It's suggested to leave them be for 4 weeks, however spraying them again at 2 weeks.
