How to Prepare Pinecones for Crafting
Before we get started with the crafts, though, here are a few tips about preparing your pine cones for crafts. You don’t HAVE to do any preparation if you don’t want to, but since pine cones can often harbor tiny bugs, I always recommend using one of these quick prep solutions to avoid introducing any pests into your home.
Prep Pine Cones with Vinegar
In your sink or a bucket, make a vinegar solution that is 1 part vinegar and 3 parts water. Soak the pine cones for 30 minutes in the solution and then allow to dry completely before using them for crafting.
Prep Pine Cones in the Oven
To rid the pine cones of any pests, preheat your oven to 225 degrees. Place the pinecones on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes (larger pine cones can be baked for up to 60 minutes if necessary). Baking the pine cones into the oven will also cause them to dry out and open up a bit more, which is really handy for crafting!
Prep Pine Cones with Both Methods
Of course, you could also opt to dunk your pinecones in the vinegar solution and then dry them in the oven. This is actually my favorite method, and it fully ensures that your pinecones are clean, free from any living organisms, and ready for crafting.
