Scented Pine cones
White craft glue
Mixed spice (available in the baking section)
These Pine cones smell great and are very festive for Christmas, they also make lovely fillers in gift baskets for loved ones and friends. Hang them from your door handles or from your Christmas tree.
These are quick and easy to make, they are ideal for group activities or school children.
Take the Pine cone and using a small paintbrush or your finger spread some glue onto the inside edges around the cone. Place it over some newspaper or a bowl and sprinkle the mixed spices over the cone. It will collect on to the wet glue. Give it a little shake and allow it to dry for several hours.
Add a Ribbon Bow to the top to hang it up with.
