All you have to do is:
- Go outside and find some pine cones (this is a great activity for the kids to do)
- shake out any dirt loose dirt that is on them
- put them in the sink in warm water and let them soak for about 1/2 hour
- place on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake them at 200F for about 1/2-2 hours. You will see when the ends open and they get shiny. They will not be sticky anymore and ready to decorate after they cool.
These cones will last for years prepped this way.
Wyatt helped make this one. I will post the other ones as I make them
