How To Prepare Pine Cones For Crafts?

Before you start using pinecones for crafts, be sure to clean and prepare them since they might be covered in sap, mildew, or creepy crawlies.

You don’t want to use pinecones that haven’t been cleaned properly in your projects, especially if you’re going to be selling them.

Cleaning them is a simple process though it requires little time and patience.

Remove Dirt

Remove any loose moss, dirt, or pine needles with a pair of tweezers or a brush.


Soak the pine cones in a solution of one cup of water and a half cup of white vinegar for 20-30 mins.

Make sure that the solution covers the pine cones completely and rinse them thoroughly with water after soaking. It will help remove any sap or resin and also disinfect the pinecones.

Let them dry completely overnight.


The best way to clean pinecones is to bake them in the oven at 200 degree F for 30-40 mins.

This step will kill any critters that might be lurking inside, as well as remove any sap or residue.

Seal And Preserve

Seal the pinecones with a sealer. You may use clear acrylic spray, polyurethane, or spray varnish

This is an optional step, but I would highly recommend it if you’re going to be using the pinecones in your home decor project or selling them.
