I was walking through the grocery store the other day and they had these brooms and bags of pinecones that smelled of heavenly cinnamon. I am a sucker for those things and always pick them up. Not this year, I decided to make my own Cinnamon Scented Pinecones.
What you Need
I sent the kids outside to collect some pinecones from the yard. We have a TON of them. If you don’t have pinecones you can pick them up pretty cheap from the craft store. Since my pinecones came from he yard, I popped them in the oven at about 200 degrees for 20 minutes. I just wanted to make sure there were no bugs hitchhiking into the house.
I then put my pinecones into a gallon ziploc bag and sprinkled them with a few drops of cinnamon essential oil. I zipped the bag shut and gave it a good shake. I actually let the pinecones sit in the bag for a couple hours before opening it. I felt like this gave the pinecones a good chance at absorbing the oils.
Now just put them out in a bowl or decorate with them however you choose. Your house will smell cinnamony and amazing!
