How to DIY Your Own Cinnamon Scented Pine Cones

The simple craft every fall lover must know.


Place these festive decorations around your home to add a touch of spice to every room. Dress them up with ribbons and glitter, or keep them natural and pile them in a basket or vase. They’ll look great and smell even better.

What you’ll need:

Pine cones
Cinnamon essential oil
Baking sheet and foil
Spray bottle

Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread pine cones on foil-covered baking sheet and bake for one hour. (This step will get rid of any insects or pests.) Allow cones to cool. Fill a spray bottle with water. Add three drops of cinnamon essential oil to the bottle and shake. Spray pine cones with mixture. Place cones in a resealable bag and let sit for two weeks (the longer the pine cones sit, the stronger the scent will become).
