We melted the wax and added a few drops each of clove, orange and black pepper oils,
dipped the pinecones and left them to dry on some newspaper.
They smelled wonderful, as Diana says they looked rather ‘frosty’ after their dipping and the whole process took just half an hour.
Yesterday there was a nip in the air and I built a fire using our homemade lighters. The pinecones flared up, crackled and the smoke was scented. They made made the whole process a joy.
It was a good start to the new season.
