Got Pinecones?


If you have been collecting pinecones for Christmas crafts, you need to know how to get them ready to bring indoors with no sap or bugs!

Drying & Opening Pine Cones

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spread pine cones across it in a single layer. Place the pine cones in the oven for 30 minutes or until the cones are fully opened and the sap has melted. Do not leave the oven unsupervised during this time, be alert for smoke or fire.

  • Remove from oven and let them rest for a couple days before using them.

  • The drying process will kill any bugs and melt the sap due to the heat. There will be a natural sheen or gloss from the melted sap.

  • After this step, go ahead and paint or glitter the pinecones for a beautiful, natural holiday decoration

     

    Get Rid Of Your Concrete Cracks... It's easy!

    Project Instructions
    When working with cement-based products, always wear eye protection and waterproof gloves. QUIKRETE Concrete Repair, QUIKRETE Gray Concrete Crack Seal or QUIKRETE Self-Leveling Polyurethane Sealant may be used.
