  1. Begin making your scented pine cones by placing the pine cones on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or wax paper.
  2. Bake at 200 degrees until pine cones are fully opened. (30 minutes to 3 hours).
  3. Remove pine cones from the oven and allow to cool fully.
  4. While pine cones are cooling, mix 1/2 cup glue with 10 drops of Vanilla Oleoresin and stir well.
  5. Pour in 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon and stir well, adding more glue if needed.
  6. Roll cooled pine cones in the glue mixture, then transfer to parchment paper to dry fully, turning halfway through.
  7. Once fully dried, store pine cones in a decorative container or jar. Refresh with a drop of vanilla oleoresin as needed.
