I know, it’s a tad early to be posting about Christmas but if you want to do cinnamon pinecones the way I am, you have to start like, now! I started making my own cinnamon oil to coat them in using only two things:

  • Cinnamon Sticks
  • Cooking Oil

This is really easy, just take the sticks and place them in a jar ( I broke them up, not sure if that matters or not but I wanted to make sure I got all the cinnamon goodness out). Then, fill with cooking oil. If you plan on cooking with this cinnamon oil in the future, you should use an olive oil. Otherwise I just used a vegetable oil.

Set the jar in a window to cook a bit for about a month…

Then pour the oil in a ziploc bag with pine cones, shake and soak for about a day and you have Christmas pinecones!

UPDATE: This cinnamon oil did not really turn out, sorry it was sort of a fail! However…..I bought Cinnamon Extract to put on my pinecones, worked beautifully! I bought it at Walmart but you can buy a large pack on Amazon too here: Cinnamon Extract on Amazon
There are also different oils you could probably use as well on Amazon Cinnamon Oil

  1. Great idea! It’s never to early to start thinking about Christmas! ;)

  2. I love this idea.
    Just curious about measurements and yield.
    Do the pinecones soak up the entire contents, or do you do multiple batches from one ziploc?
