Favorite Ways To Use Pine Cones For Decor:

Step 1: Bake pine cones

Simply line your cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil and add your pine cones in a single layer. Set your oven to 200 degrees F and bake them for about 25-30 minutes.

Step 2: Bleach pine cones

In order to bleach your pine cones mix 2 parts bleach to 1 part water in a large container and fully submerge the pine cones. Let them stay in this mixture for 48 hours or more. Then take them out and lay them out to dry for a week or more. You will know they are dry when they open up.

Step 3: Soaking/Washing

Simply mix 1/2 cup of white vinegar with 1/2 cup of water then soak your pine cones for about 30-40 minutes. Just make sure to not leave them in too long as they will close up. Remove them and rinse thoroughly and then lay them out on a cookie sheet to dry.

So this Fall if you are looking to add some affordable yet classic decor to your home don’t count out pine cones! Luckily there are several options for how to prepare pine cones for crafts or decor. You just have to decide which works best for you!
