Thanksgiving Scented Pinecone Craft

Thanksgiving craft

The sweet scent of cinnamon, a pinch of allspice and the fragrant scent of cloves. These are the smells of Thanksgiving! That said, you don’t have to spend all day baking in the kitchen just to make your home smell like you did. Store-bought ‘autumn’ or Thanksgiving themed air fresheners don’t exactly smell real – and a plastic-covered container isn’t festive to look at. Instead of going with a chemical scent, make your own using natural materials and real spices. Thanksgiving scented pinecones bring the smell of fall into your home, while giving you a decoratively crafty display.

Materials:

  • Pinecones (you can collect these from your yard or the local park, or buy a bag at an arts and crafts supply store)
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • A paintbrush
  • A paper plate
  • Your favorite fall spice – Cinnamon, allspice, ground gloves, pumpkin pie spice (or you can mix a few)

Instructions:

  1. Gently brush any dirt or loose residue off of the pinecones. You can use your finger tips or a soft dusting cloth.
  2. Pour a golf ball-sized pool of glue onto the paper plate.
  3. Dip the paintbrush into the glue. Lightly ‘paint’ the glue onto the pinecone. Don’t worry about getting into each and every groove. You can keep the glue on the ends or tips of the pinecone.
  4. Shake pinches of the spice (or spices) over the glue.
  5. Let the glue dry for at least two hours. Brush or shake off any excess spice.
  6. Display the scented pinecones in a bowl or on the Thanksgiving table.
