Making your own scented pinecones is fun and easy. One of the best parts is that you can choose any scent that you like. We have tons of Christmas fragrances to choose from. Most storebought pinecones will have a cinnamon aroma, which you can duplicate by using a fragrance like Cinnamon Spice. Other great choices include Christmas Pine, Pinecones, or Iced Evergreen. You can’t go wrong!
You can also make scented pine cones with essential oils if you like. Simply swap the fragrance oil in the recipe for essential oils!
To make scented pinecones, you simply need to add a few drops of fragrance to dry pinecones using a pipette. It’s easy to adjust the amount of scent by adding more fragrance. Once dry, the pinecones can be displayed in your holiday décor.
DIY scented pinecones can be freshened up with more fragrance whenever the scent fades. All you need to do is add a few more drops of fragrance to give them a boost. After freshening up the scent, just let the fragrance dry again and the pinecones will be ready to use.
