how to make cinnamon scented pine conesIntro:  You may look out upon your yard and wonder what you are going to do with all of the pine cones that have fallen.  You can use them to make your own cinnamon scented pine cones, just like the ones you find in retail stores that cost a bit much for just pine cones.  Yours, however, can be made much cheaper.

Step 1:  Gather your pine cones and use a paint brush to paint each with cinnamon oil that can be purchased in any arts and crafts store.

Step 2:  Place the pine cones in a large plastic bag with cinnamon sticks and cinnamon chips.

Step 2:  Seal the bag and allow the pine cones and cinnamon to "cure" for about 8 weeks.  Shake about once a week to distribute the cinnamon.

Tips:

•You can also add dried orange peel to the mixture.

•Feel free to sprinkle a few extra drops of cinnamon oil on the mixture before sealing the bag.

•Display in a mesh bag or decorative bowl/platter.

I can't wait to try this for next year. I buy quite a few sacks from Smith's every year for my elderly friends at the senior center. I've often wondered how to make them. Thank you for taking the time to give the instructions, Dena.
