Since I'm broke this year, I've been looking for ideas for cheap, do-it-yourself Christmas gifts. I can't wait to make these pine cones for my friends and co-workers! While this recipe that I found is for the cinnamon-scented pine cones you find at houseware and craft stores, I'm pretty sure you could probably use vanilla or spiced orange scents, or whatever you would like.


  1. Spread pine cones on foil-covered cookie sheet and cook at 250 degrees for one hour. This will kill any critters that might be in there.
  2. When cool place in a heavy plastic bag and sprinkle well with the Cinnamon Oil Scent. Seal tightly and let set for about four weeks.
