Living in a forested area of Maine I have ready access to a variety of cones from cedar to white pine. I've made wreaths and ornaments with them for years. I have never thought to bleach or give a different scent to them. This is a project I must try. I think I'd try peppermint oil for a scent. (I feel my sense of smell nearly assaulted when I go to a store that has cinnamon scented cones. It's way too much so I'd do a subtle addition. Cinnamon seems to be a common scent used, what would you try for a different smell?

Who would think that you could make something so pretty out of bleach and a little time, right? I love this idea. You can use this for gifts or to decorate your home and make it look super cute for the holidays. I like that you can make the room smell nice this way too.

I never realized how easy it is to make these scented pine cones. Bleaching them and then drying them in the oven to open them up seems just so easy. I knew to add a little scented oil to them but it is in the process of bleaching and drying that really enhances them a lot.

I buy pine cones for Christmas potpourri. I had no idea I can bleach these cones to make it look brighter and livelier. And scent can be added too? What a great idea.

Wow! I had no idea you could add your own scent to pine cones. I plan to display these in a decorative bowl. Pretty!
