Two It Yourself: Pinecone Decor: How to clean and dry pine cones for crafts

Two It Yourself: Pinecone Decor: How to clean and dry pine cones for crafts ~ 200 degrees fir 20 - 30 minutes. Do not soak before putting in the oven because they will close up.

WHY: Many insects munch on developing pinecones; if the cones are brought inside, they will crawl out & become a nuisance in your home. Pinecones may have sap in them still which could make a mess if not dried properly. • HOW: Heat oven to 200°F; place cones on foil-lined baking sheet or casserole dish. Place in oven, making sure to check often so they do not burn. Once they have opened up & sap has had a chance to seep out & dry up, the cones are done {about 30 mins}. • ALTERNATIVELY…

Friendly reminder: as you collect those pinecones and acorns this season, remember to bake the bugs out! Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees and then put your pine cones in for 45 minutes.
