How To Dry Pine Cones For Crafting
We like crafting around here! Both sides of my family are filled with crafty people. And one of my favorite ways to craft is by using items from nature!

That was the whole theme for our wedding! Christmas is a great time to gather up a basket full of pine cones and decorate your house.
To craft with pine cones you will first want to dry them.
By drying them, you get rid of any little critters hiding in there, as well as opening them up. They will close when they are damp.
To dry your pine cones you only need two more items, parchment paper, and a baking sheet; and 30 minutes.
Line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the pine cones in a single layer. Bake at 200°F for 30 minutes and you are all done!
