DIY Pinecone Crafts.
If you’re looking for inexpensive craft materials, you can’t find anything better than materials that you can just pick up outside! One of my favorite natural fall materials is pinecones! They naturally come in different shapes and sizes, and they’re so versatile! Also, they’re so easy to find for free, either in your own backyard or the local park! You can also buy bags of pinecones in most large craft stores if you can’t find free ones. If you’re looking for easy and frugal ways to had some rustic decor to your home for fall or winter, then try some of these 12 DIY Pinecone Crafts!

If you don’t live in an area where pinecones naturally occur, you can easily find a bag of them at your local craft store or on Amazon here. Those can be used right out of the bag unless you want to change the color.
Pinecones that you find outside need to be treated before you craft with them because they have bugs (and sap)! All you need to do is to line a baking tray with parchment paper and bake them in a 200° oven for about 90 minutes. Be sure to check on your pinecones periodically (they are flammable after all). This should burn off the sap and bugs
You can always lighten up the normal color of pinecones by bleaching them or painting them whatever color works for your decor (white, orange, red, green etc).
