I have lots of pine cones that I use to make wreaths, etc. with. Now I', wondering how can I make cinnamon pine cones. I think they smell so great.

Did you Google it? I would think you could use a little candle wax with cinnamon mixed it but might not look too nice, if you mixed cinnamon with glue it might not have any smell could try a little cinnamon in some & see if you can smell it when it dries. Try to spray a little adhesive or clear coat & while wet sprinkle with cinnamon, maybe using a flour sifter as you would have to get it on in a hurry & evenly. Maybe someone has made some, sound nice! I'd like to know how to make them. Jan

Pinecones

Just Google in "Making cinnamon pinecones" McCormick has easy directions.Paint white glue on pinecone tips & sprinkle with cinnamon powder, shake off excess. There was another site farther down that said 1/4 c. cinnamon escentual oils if you wish etc. Norton says it may not be a safe site so be careful. If your wreaths are for outside use Glueall or it will wash off in rain. Elmer's Glueall won't wash off, I use it at ends of rose canes so borers don't get in them.

I would use the escentual oils...Most of the scented pine cones you buy do not have anything glued on.

I have about nine pines outside. with about three different sizes of pine...I think I'll go pick some up and make up some baskets of cinnamon scented for gifts.

I love the smell for Christmas.
