Here's a kid-friendly craft to add some sparkle to your table this year. To top it off, you will enjoy the warm, inviting scent of cinnamon wafting through your home. A basket of these would make great teacher's gift too!

What You Need

pinecones
white glue
glitter, your choice of colors
cinnamon
decorative container, bowl or basket


What you do

Be sure to choose pinecones that are "open", spines should be spread apart not flat against the side of the cone. To dry them out and kill any bugs or mites that might be inside, bake pinecones on a cookie sheet at 200 degrees F for 45 minutes. Let cool completely.

Paint the tips of a pinecone with white glue. Liberally shake colored glitter onto the pinecones. Lightly dust with cinnamon. Dry completely overnight.

Tip: To revive the scent of your craft, occasionally spritz with a liquid cinnamon potpourri or use a few drops of cinnamon oil on the bottom of the pinecones.
